I snuck away for an hour or so this afternoon and checked out the two local flora and fauna reserves. Bit of a scheme going around these parts at present, trying to document any sightings of Swift Parrots and Regent Honeyeaters.
The two reserves are looking the best they ever have for some time, reflecting the rainfall we have been having for a while now. At the Heyfield Flora Reserve, there was water flowing through a small gully where I've not seen even a small puddle before! There was a little activity in the tree tops, but not a lot of blossom on the Ironbarks or Box just yet.
I did have some fun with Mr ubiquitous (Grey Fantail), however...
