The brilliant weather and a low tide at 1pm today was perfect for the local fishermen, they came out on the river and along the river enjoying the sun and the clean clear water that is now flowing in the Johnstone River. Bait boils could be clearly seen in the shallows and the men in the photo got a full bucket in a couple of throws of the cast net.
Three young, black pigs are causing damage in the nursery. They have eaten the heart out of potted pandanus plants. See photo. They are very timid and look about 12 months old.
They are also eating the figs and leave little for the cassowaries.
Great letter from Ian McCallan of Cardwell in the Tully Times this week re QPWS burning rainforest.
Cheers and love
