This week’s creatures – 27 August 2020 – Tree Climbing Dragon

It’s been a slower couple of weeks as the weather has been quite cool in the evenings and there is less animal activity. We were lucky to see a barking owl on a tree up Mount Cootha as well as a goanna climbing up a gum tree to say gday to whatever was up the top.

This week’s creatures: 30 March 2020 – Barking owl, powerful owl, kookaburras!

A bit of rain coming though Brisbane has brought a lot of insect life out into the forest. The current restrictions on public events have made it difficult to organise dive trips and group walks in the evenings but we have been lucky to get out and see some of the forest friends.

The echidna was digging around looking for ants and was undisturbed by the people – must have been hungry. The dragonfly and owls have been brought out by the heavy rain. The powerful owl was watching us very closely for a potential meal… have to be very careful when walking around in the forest given current circumstances!

This week’s creatures – 3 January 2020 – Barking Owls, Bull Rays, My Python!

We have been very fortunate to have had few fire problems this week (compared to the southern states.)

We have been in the forest and sea each day and have been lucky to see these awesome creatures. With a bit of luck the weather will be kind and let the firies do their work to save the creatures and forests (and their own homes.)

The snake is the Morelia spilota mcdowelli, McDowell’s Python. What a lovely name for such a lovely creature!

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!
