Six years ago 15 or 16 Black Cockatoos paid us a brief visit

and we haven’t seen hide nor hair of them since.

In 2015 fifteen this

Superb Fairy Wren

was sighted in the garden,

never to be seen again.


Whereas the resident family of

New Holland Honeyeaters


…have become loud, noisy and flighty.

We have also had Spur Wing Plovers

make their nest in the front yard…


..the last time was a few years ago.

As soon as I put some protection around

the nest, the eggs disapeared.

I suspect Candi may have enjoyed them.

This Bluetongue Lizard had taken up residence

under our front verandah.

Earlier this year three or pieces of sliced and diced lizard

turned up in the back yard.

I think I may have inadvertently run over it

while cutting the grass.

Bees are also a regular in the garden.

Every now and again usually during late summer we

are inundated with

Sulphur Crested or Corella Cockatoos

We sometimes find parrots,

such as the Eastern Rosella…

…and the

Red Rump Parrot

making an appearance.

All doing their best to tear up the yard

in search of plant roots.
