Whip it!

Local patch: nothing "birdy" today to report, but instead a Western Whip Snake was creeping up on a wall in the garden. It disappeared quite quickly... however it was an adult, due to the black colouring on the back.

Also interesting record: this morning, in the busiest streets of the city of Trieste, I noticed a Banded Demoiselle flying low over the taxies and parked cars, among people. Never seen a damselfy in urban habitat before!
