Good-bye flies

2641 ice on bird bath OKBy ERWIN CHLANDA

 

Our bird bath was covered with a thin sheet of ice this morning, the first this year!

 

It’s good news for us in Rangeview Estate – bad news for the flies which have been super pexy.

 

Cold weather usually decimates them.

 

Meanwhile the Bureau of Metereology says nights will be chilly in the south this week, with morning frost forecast for Alice Springs and some parts of the Lasseter and Simpson districts from mid-week.

 

“A trough will start to push into southern areas of the Territory from next weekend, meaning the weather will briefly be a little warmer in the southern NT, reaching mid 20°C on Saturday and Sunday which is around 10°C warmer than the maximums this week,” says BOM.

 

That means warmer weather for the Finke.
