Bush Picnic 2015 Photos

Hi All

We’ve finally put up the picnic photos – it has only taken 3 months! You can find them on their own page in the Photo Gallery. Thanks heaps to Alison Young for taking them all.

Here are some of the cutest…

Frog calls

Hi All

This a Land for Wildlife South East Queensland Facebook post about a recording of frog calls Pete and I made at our dam on Wordwood one night. Click on the sound recording to listen. It was deafening. Go to the Land for Wildlife site to identify the frogs and see their spawn the next morning.

The next morning our red-bellied black snake, Sir Bernard Black, was swimming in the dam to have a tasty meal of frogs. He stayed out of site underwater for at least 20 minutes. No chance I am swimming in that dam again!

Autumn 2015

Hi All

Lovely Autumn weekend at Wordwood (14&15 January 2015). The first night of the year with a camp fire and the quilt up. Jessie had a burst of energy just like she was a puppy again – remembering why she loves Wordwood too!

Hi All

I know I am a crazy blogger – two blogs in one day! I have added to our Spottings and Fauna Species List pages.  We captured a number of great photos on our wildlife camera near a waterhole during the dry weather September 2014.  Details are on the pages but here are some of the photos.
