Wednesday 26th April 2017


Last night after dark we heard this strange bird call outside, so we decided to investigate.

It turned out to be a curlew, but the noise it was making wasn't the normal curlew call. We think it was asking for food, as the owners here usually feed them, but we haven't seen them for a while. Anyhow Geoff got the mealy worms from the fridge & threw a handful over the gate. We assume it found them, as no further sounds were heard!

We had a walk in the (Edmund Kennedy National Park) Girramay National Park. We spotted some more curlews, a pretty-faced wallaby, a small lace monitor, & much to our surprise, a feral piglet!
I saw a couple of different epiphyte orchid leaves in the trees, though none were flowering.

While the sunny days look great, they make bush walking very hot. It was a rather sweaty walk today.
