Tuesday 23rd August 2016


This morning I was up early, I went down to the Molonglo River to join in a Platypus survey. Geoff had seen it advertised on a Canberra website, & thought I might be interested.

It was well organised, having done for the past 7 years, every August. Teams of 2 people were spread along the river, with binoculars & survey forms to fill in. There were about 14 of us in this area, with another bunch along the Jerrabomberra Creek, a bit further down stream.

Sadly I didn't see any platypus, though a couple were seen by others in the group...maybe next time!

The rest of the day was uneventful. I packed for our trip to Sydney tomorrow, & cut Geoff's hair after lunch.

The new day

The Platypus-free Molonglo River


We had the ute detailed today. It was in need of a good tub, and having it done properly should give us a feel-good feeling for a little while...
