Red, the pademelon, has been in a fight. I'm not sure of his adversary. It might have been another pademelon, a dog or a brush turkey. (This last one is not as unlikely as it sounds. I've seen Red and Harry the brush turkey engage in serious interspecies argy-bargy.) Anyway, Red has cuts and puncture wounds on both sides of his head and has been feeling very sorry for himself.
Mind you, he seems to have perked up a bit today. I think he can smell food.

Not long to go before the start of cyclone season. The Bureau of Meteorology begins issuing daily cyclone outlook reports on 1 November. The reports keep going through the Wet Season and end on 30 April next year. Fortunately, the Bureau is predicting an average to lower than average number of cyclones this season. That suits me just fine.
I will have to think about cyclone supplies soon. And this time I'm going to buy a fancy tin-opener that doesn't rust and has sharp teeth and a nice wide key so I don't dislocate my fingers trying to get the lid off. And if I can't find a good tin-opener, I will have to train up some white-tailed rats.They can bite right through a baked bean can.
