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.
are inundated with
Sulphur Crested or Corella Cockatoos
We sometimes find parrots,
such as the Eastern Rosella…
Red Rump Parrot
making an appearance.
All doing their best to tear up the yard
in search of plant roots.
