An occasional blog about natural history, travel, books and writing ... and anything else that catches my attention.
Sure beats the view from a window in Footscray!
It's amazing, isn't it? I can't believe this place. The house is small and needs a lot of work, but who cares when there's all this wildlife?
Looks like the riflebird is after your unpublished manuscripts.

Almost makes up for dial-up, doesn't it? We have deer in the yard... they just eat the flowers and poop without providing much entertainment. (sigh) It's nice of you to share!
G'day Bronwen,Vis-a-vis Duncan's comment, what a contrast. It's great going on this journey with you through the blog. Wonderful stuff. Er, has it rained yet?Gouldiae
A regular menagerie there. Are you sure you're not Dr. Doolittle?
Sherrie, the pademelons are little furry poop machines. Fortunately, they tend to produce dry stuff, so it's not too revolting. Turkeys, otoh. leave splats so big you could use 'em as Rorschach blots!Gouldiae, we've had a spot of drizzle but that's it. Heard an old feller at Eacham complaining about the lack of rain. Although it's known as the dry season, that distinction doesn't really apply on this part of the Tablelands!Dave, I have been talking to the animals. I got one (gullible) turkey talking back and the catbirds didn't quite know how to respond to me. But now they've wised up. I address them in English. They ignore me. It's like having toddlers.
Great to see you settling in, with the neighbours, Bronwen.When it does rain, I am sure you will be out there following snail trails. The birds will be forgotten.CheersDenis
It's been raining all day, so I'm about to pull on some boots and go for a walk with the spotlight. It usually has to be raining for a few days before the snails emerge, but I'll have a quick look anyway.
