Royals at Rest

A recent dash to Sale had me killing a little time at an old haunt - Lake Guyatt.


Amid the Royal Spoonbills was an occasional Auatralian White Ibis

Olive Whistler

At Uralla Nature Reserve last Friday, Dave and I had a brief encounter with a bird more often heard than seen. This individual Olive Whistler seemed very curious of us strangely, for they normally are quite elusive and hard to spot in the dense gullies. Even briefly gave its rich and powerful whistle once or twice.
 Gouldiae.

Who’s Monitoring Who?





A recent excursion into Bunyip State Park and a cuppa at the Nash Creek picnic ground produced the following encounter …

Lace Monitor Bunyip SP #1
Lace Monitor Bunyip SP #2
Lace Monitor Bunyip SP #3


An explanation
This blog has been rather devoid of posts recently. I don’t really have much of a reason but being busy in other places, laziness maybe, and a recent computer crash haven’t helped.

I am endeavouring to overcome the first two reasons and John at Warragul Computer Repair. has solved the third problem for me.

(Incidentally, between recovering my data from a crashed Acer – 10 days outside its warranty period – and installing onto a new HP, John added FastStone for my perusal. FastStone is a free, strong and very user-friendly image sorter/editor that I am beginning to enjoy using.)
