It was a full moon two nights ago (huge tide and more beach erosion!) and I heard a noise on the balcony. When I went to have a look I saw we had some nocturnal visitors – a family of Tawny Frogmouths. They aren’t owls (they are related) but sure look a lot like them.
The one on the far right is the baby. His or her feathers looked so soft and new.
They do this swaying thing with their head and body (bit like a snake) when they are agitated.
Then after about 10 minutes they turned their backs on me and flew off.
I thought they might be messengers but the phone hasn’t rung yet!
