Madness Friends of the Box-Ironbark Forests

Theres a saying that you dont have  to be mad, but it helpsbut at 9.30 on Sunday morning it seemed that you really did have to be mad to embark on FOBIFs June walk into the Tarilta valley. Six degrees, a fine rain and forecast of possible hail: none of this was encouraging. All the same, eleven heroes rocked up, and were rewarded with a great experience in the remote valley, one of the regions jewels. The weather turned out to be bluffing, too, obligingly moderating for morning tea and lunch breaks, with the suggestion of sunshine at regular intervals.

Our thanks to walk leader Jeremy Holland for guiding the group along a terrifically interesting route into the valley from the north; and of course the advantage of rain is that it gave a trickle of water over the areas two very picturesque waterfalls. Fungi and mosses were in abundance, and the grand Candlebarks along the valley floor seemed even more spectacular in the misty weather.

The focus of next months walk, in the Gowar Forest, will be walking with birds. Check the program for details.

Honeyeaters up close Natural Newstead

Nice views this afternoon of two honeyeaters the Eastern Spinebills (at least three different individuals) are paying regular visits to the Grevilleas in the front yard.

Again, late this afternoon, a Blue-faced Honeyeater arrived in our street, its calls drawing instant attention. Im pleased to have got my best local shots of this bird.

1801 - Lieut William Paterson founded a settlement on the Hunter River. Alas! He forgot the first rule in real estate - location, location, location, and thus it was kicked to the kerb (abandoned to you fancy-pants readers) in 1802.

1806 - Sydney's very first girl's school was opened by Mrs Williams while many parents breathed a sigh of relief and stopped eyeing off the latest line of chastity belts.
An early St Trinian's....?

1879 - Proving that scratching about in the dirt isn't just a fun hobby prospectors John Atherton and James Robson tripped over tin deposits on the tablelands inland from Cairns, Queensland.

A cloudy day at Joyces Creek Natural Newstead

A visit to the Joyces Creek arm of Cairn Curran on Monday was a bit of a desperate attempt to satisfy the bird photography addiction (aggravated by the acquisition of upgraded lens and camera) on a cloudy and unpromising day. While I was delighted to see a party of five male and one female Flame Robins, they were a bit reluctant to pose for the paparazzi, as were the many Black -fronted Dotterels.Red-kneed Dotterel (Erythrogonys cinctus) on the shoreline was more accommodating, but still a little coy.

A group of five Yellow-billed Spoonbills (Platalea flavipes) perched in an old dead River Red Gum were considerably more obliging. A little bit of light breaking through the sombre clouds at the right moment was even better.

Time to move on

As I wended my way back to the car, the Flame Robins were still shy, but a Superb Fairy-wren (Malurus cyaneus) clad in formal attire was happy to pose on a suitably corroded picket.
