Friday 11 August to Thursday 17 August 2017
Temperatures continue to rise on the Gold Coast - mid to high 20's with a couple of maximums of 29 degrees. On one of the days when we had 29 degrees, Brisbane had a maximum of 32.3 degrees.
While I have yet to get a photo, every couple of days a beautiful red, yellow and blue Macaw flies up and down the Creek pursued by seagulls and other birds trying to chase it off. Apparently the Macaw is owned by someone who lives in Burleigh not far from the Creek, and they let it out for a fly around every couple of days.
Another bird that causes great consternation with other birds is the Kookaburra. The Kookaburra was sitting in a nearby tree with Noisy Miners trying to chase it off - to no avail.
Perhaps the highlight of the week was a water skier using a surf board with a foil cum winged keel arrangement. While he fell off a few times it was spectacular to see him riding a foot or so above the water.
The Noisy Miners were getting very agitated with the Kookaburra.
The Kookaburra was taking no notice of the Noisy Miners.
