A Sandy Beach Almanac

You've landed at Sandy Beach, NSW, Australia: Lat. -30.15331, Long. 153.19960, UT +10:00 – local map & zoom Google map. I live in a cabin on this beach, 25 kilometres north of the traffic and shops of Coffs Harbour, 600 km north of Sydney. My intention is to post observations of Nature and life within 1 km (1,000 paces) of my South Pacific home.

Willie sunning himself

For three days at least we've been enjoying days like Spring, during the supposedly coldest part of Winter. It's 21 degrees now and I'm in T-shirt and jeans.

Yon Willie wagtail spends part of every day, it seems, on or around this rail just 50 paces from my desk and he's enjoying the sunny day as much as the rest of us.

The dinner-suited Willie wagtail (Rhipidura leucophrys) is one of Australia's most familiar and widespread birds and a very popular one.
