Yes, I know, it's a great disaster... :bow:
Til now 500 millions animals died, it is incredible for me and no end in sight... :cry:
I guess many species will die out, we humans are completely helpless. The climate change is on his way...

Thank you very much for the links, I'm always glad when the trio is fine there.

Just now from chat:

​Good morning all. There is no danger to our falcons, fortunately, from fires, but the drought has reduced the supply of prey.

I've read on chat, that it's possible Pluto has left already his home territory and maybe he is on his own way. Good luck smart little guy, will miss you!

​My ears are burning. I tried to find Pluto last night, but no sign of him. Not much in the way of prey remains under the roost trees, either, but there was sheep in the paddock.

Pluto arrived :loveshower: :loveshower: Diamond left immediately. :mrgreen:

​Good evening from a damp Bellingen. In fact it is quite green here compared to further south.
