Bit depressed today, not because of the unseasonal weather (though had planned to visit the Causeway today to see the new information panels detailing its history etc), but because workmen are busy next door removing a giant mango tree (not sure why, as not near any of the neighbours’ buildings – it’s most close to us). The saddest thing is removing its shelter might mean we will miss the visits by parrots, parakeets and smaller birds to the feeders on the bedroom window. We are already missing the visiting birds in the front, as the new parking area building regulations required – for off-road parking – meant removing the bushes, shrubs and the banana tree that attracted all sorts (including a flock of chachalacas on one occasion). We wait to see what will happen once the tree is gone…
