A week of spectacular weather, wonderful to have fine weather for the school holidays.
The Johnstone River is clear, I can see the sand on the bottom, at long last! Today the river was sparkling and salty and very busy with boaties enjoying the sun.
The scrub fowls are rebuilding their mound. The mound was compacted from the constant rain over the last many months. The birds, although regularly visiting the site of the mound, had not been actively scratching and turning it over. So opportunists thieves, as most animals are, the scrub fowls are pinching my brand new pile of mulch, about one cubic metre per night. They are relocating it to their mound built behind my nursery soil bays: a distance of about ten metres.
They are piling it on top of the compacted compost and do not appear to be mixing it. Hopefully they will leave me some mulch to use on my garden.
Saw cassowary ‘Brown Cone’ again on Thursday, he is looking a lot stronger, hopefully he has found the feeding station. Got a couple of clear shots of his casque, both sides for identification.
On a happy note the hyperactive sunbirds are building new nests, one over the table on the patio. I can have a cuppa and watch the building, isn’t that what life is all about.
Cheers Yvonne C.
