Melbourne heatwave

I think this image of a lone Magpie sitting on a tap in the shade of the front garden says it all about Melbourne's heat-wave. It appeared to know where the water came from but couldn't get to it. I placed a container of cold water out  in the morning, which they all drank from, but by the afternoon they'd long forgotten where it was.
This morning they remembered and are outside drinking from the container and looking for insects.
I made the mistake of going out in yesterday's heat, today I'm going to stay indoors, which means endless hours of being on the computer or watching television. Oh! to be young again, to be able to head off to the beach regardless of the endless heat.
