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!

Wildlife camera photos

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.

Inaugural bush picnic photos

Hi All

It has only taken me 4 months but I have now put up the photos from the Inaugural Bush Picnic at Wordword. Thanks to Alison for taking them all. They are under Photo Gallery – Inaugural Bush Picnic.

Here are some samples:

Spring of birds and bandicoots

Hi All

On our last few visits to Wordwood there has been plenty of evidence of Spring. Lots of birds – see the photos of a visiting White-headed Pigeon under the page LFW – Spottings.   White-throated Treecreepers are nesting in one of our nest boxes. As we watched from the deck of The Nook, the male returned with food and fed the female.  Hoping for babies soon.  Pete took the cool photo of a pretend bird by lamp light one evening.

Most exciting of all, we captured the bandicoot that regularly visits The Nook at night on our wildlife camera.  See the photo of the bandicoot under the page LFW – Spottings.

New photos, etc

Hi All

Lots of updates.

First,  photos added in the ‘Photo Gallery’ – additions to the ‘Pete (& Visitors) Photos’ page and a new page of ‘LFW Open Day Photos’.  Also a photo of one of our bat boxes under ‘Nest Boxes’ in ‘From Pete’s Shed’.

Second, updated ‘Spottings’ under ‘Land For Wildlife’ – some interesting Glossy Black Cockatoo facts.

Third, a new ‘Quote’ under ‘Margie’s Snippets’.

Fourth, a new story under ‘Stories’ in ‘Margie’s Snippets’ – inspired by dreams of retirement.

We are working away on covering the deck and repainting The Nook, so pictures coming soon.

Feel free to leave a comment on this post/blog at the place indicated at the end of this post.

Happy winter,

Margie
