Post Posted: Tue Jan 16, 2018 6:23 pm    Post subject: Crimson finches, next monsoon and Dumb Blonde.

Been a while since here last, but happy to report New bar is fully operating, new kitchen and dining room still 2-3-4 Mth. away.

BUT, crimson finches very busy with their "mating games", typically NT style, more males than females, no nest building started yet, so next monsoon through still at least 3-4 weeks away, like mid Feb. SORRY. Casey the 'cute croc' went nesting with that rain we had couple weeks ago, and while out here had far more than Darwin, cannot really be described as Monsoon. Adelaide river rose 1/2 meter above standard high water mark, and is still sitting roughly there. With rain came 5-6 days of massive cherubins, but not one single 'berried female', also indicating NO MONSOON YET. Still get 2-4 big ones a day in my 3 pots, but no 'Berries', they do not run till they know that river will flow one way all the way out to the salt, or at least heavely brackish water required for their spawn to make it. SO, enjoy the 'warm' weather all, think about the poor Yanks that have been through minus 30 to 50 centigrade, AND STOP BITCHING.

After the NT News front page with my 'Dumb Blonde', [no, not my wife Lucy, she's just blonde.........actually grey], she,the dumb blonde, is having the time of her life chasing Fred and Casey, I have tried slowing her down with extra food, her bellie has now gone from AFL ball size to 'real football' soccer ball size. I will forward a couple of videos to Matt for "sizing", and leave it to him for attachment to here.

Cheers.....King Kai.

Great info, thanks Kai.

Dangerous dog that Dumbe Blonde. Did you hold her back or did she take while to spot it?

Tiz great, the viral video licencing people called me, have passed it on to Kai, who is passing it on to who took the vid.

There's money in croc videos folks, if you can get a short snap of something interesting (scuze pun).

Yes, thank you Matt, have now spent several hours forwarding all the videos with Dumb Blonde and 'my 2 cocs' Casey and Fred. I forwarded the full email with senders email connection, then they can sort out for 'rights' and payments, as only 'owner' of video can negotiate sales rights. This is what all news broadcasters want to liven up in all the missery it is otherwise, just a short clip of something funny.
Thanks Matt for shorter version of 'blonde attack', still think you should add beginning where I get the crock in??.

A few baz. caught last week, nothing big, but chrome as, salt water baz. up for a feed. Still not much run off,some in small drains, and river still tidal and up good 1/2 meter top of tide.

I do stand by my prediction of NO PROPER MONSOON for a while yet,Crimson finches still playing mating games/choosing partner, absolutely no nestbuilding yet. So despite BOM saying monsoon just above us, [and giving us usual showers and storms],NAH. it's going to be late. It is however perfect weather for another cold beer. Kai.
