Mainly West of Queen Street - seen through my lens




From time to time, a flock of starlings passes through the green strip along Oakley Creek by the southern end of the motorway construction site (Methuen Road Lookout). They descend onto the grass, lift off again to move a few metres, and on occasions fly up into the bare trees beside the path. All along discussing the great problems of starlingdom in their noisy way.
