This summer has set new records for temperatures. In my part of Australia, a new record was set for a heatwave – several days in a row with temperatures around 45 to 46 degrees Celsius (113 – 114.8 degrees Fahrenheit). Other parts of Australia fared much worse, and a large part of the Australian continent is suffering drought conditions as they have had no rain for a couple of years.
During these days of extreme temperatures I spent time watching the birds enjoy cool water in the bird bath.
I must confess I had to delete many images which were blurred. These little birds move at incredible speed when bathing and as such many images were not good enough to use.
