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.
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!
Been a little slower on the hill recently due to a number of other activities going on – but here’s some creatures for the new year!
