This week’s creatures: 25 May 2020 – Happy moths and angry lorikeets

Lorikeet chirps a big hello

It’s been a bit of time between updates – mainly due to inability to walk on the hill some evenings. There have been a number of birds travelling through and eating the garden’s flowers, as well as a huge number of spiders and scorpions on the slopes.

We have unfortunately had very little rain, and this is normally the rainiest time of the year. This has meant that there are typically less creatures to see in the forest, but the ones we do see are double exciting!

This week’s creatures – 30 November 2019 – Bandy Bandy snake! Barking Owl!

It’s been very dry this week, so we have been filling the water pots on the hill. We’ve seen a couple of unusual creatures!

This week’s creatures – 7 November 2019 – Koala!

It’s been exceptionally dry on the mountain this week. So we took a pot up the hill and fill it with water each night. Last night when we were filling it, we found a koala watching us. It’s a pretty rare sight to see – these guys don’t usually show themselves to humans.
