  5. They look rather haughty peering down their beaks, don't they? As if how dare you splash us. :)

    1. I like this type of bird in real life. They seems to majestic. They carry themselves so well like ballerinas.

Thinking I would use this for this week’s Taphophile Tragics post I dug a little further into William Lee’s story, it’s a very colonial Australian one. William was born of convict parents, living his childhood years around the Sydney region. In his early 20s he was issued with some government cattle, recommended as a suitable settler and granted 134 acres at Kelso near Bathurst. He was one of the first in the area and did well. A few years later he was granted a ram and an increase in his land to 300 acres. William developed a r
