What's that sound?

While we were in the garden today, cutting up the ivy that was clinging to our dead eucalyptus tree before it comes down, I heard a tapping noise in the undergrowth. It was this mother thrush, breaking open snails on a 'thrush's anvil' stone to feed her two babies.

Lovely to see.

Pictures are rubbish as it was so gloomy and she moved so fast.

Great pictures! What a treat to see. Now I know I need to lock up the cats and get some thrushes to rid the garden of snails.
