The Cape lies on the ‘high energy’ Bunurong Coast of Victoria and when the winter south westerly weather systems hit, you know it is going to be cold and very windy. There is no large land mass between Antarctica and Cape Paterson and when these systems build up in the mighty Southern Ocean, they hit pretty hard. However, despite the cold, windy and gloomy conditions here overthe past week or so (squalls, hail and sideways rain!) there have been some interesting territorial battles witnessed in the home garden, especially among our native honeyeater bird species—from the smallest to the largest!
Cape Chatter is having another short (winter) break and will be back in a few weeks!
