|13/3/07||There were 4 schools of fish in our bay out from the cliffs this morning.Two were quite large being at least 10m in diameter and very dark with lots of closely packed fish, perhaps salmon. There were also 2 large fish perhaps small sharks cruising nearby well under the water and then a very large shark with its dorsal fin regularly breaking the surface.|
|1/3/07||Seeing lots of birds and animals daily around the house as we must have the only water they can access. We saw 9 kangaroos on our front lawn eating grass (we are trying to get rid of) from the orchard on Tues night at sunset.|
The termite mound which has goanna eggs presumably laid in it hasn't had its hole completely backfilled. Another hole was dug in a mound by the track closer to the house has not been backfilled at all. Perhaps it is so dry the termites in that mound haven't survived.
|14/2/07||Sat 10/2 7pm About 10 Australian gannets could be seen out to sea quite some way wheeling and diving their white showing up clearly against the blue sea. Lots of kangaroos, up to 5 at a time, on our front lawn area eating grass brought from the orchard or drinking from a bowl. Guests absolutely enthralled at such a close view of wild animals, together with the usual wallabies.|
Mon 12/2 8am Guests enjoyed watching the birds coming down to drink at the pool at the back of the house not far from the dining room glass door, especially the Crimson Rosella pairs.
Tues 13/2 The birds which feed on our front lawn do not like a roaming goanna
spending time checking out the holes on the top of the bank that the house is built on!
Wed 14/2 7.30pm It looks like the goanna might have made one hole into a home as we watched it climb in while enjoying a quiet drink in our greenhouse.
Thurs 15/2 8.30am The bird bath in contiuous activity for 5mins as Superb Fairy
Wrens then Beautiful Firetails then a Scarlet Robin then Fairy wrens again took turns to splash and flap. Every day while it is so dry we are continuing to see so much wildlife, kangaroos, wallabies, various birds during the day at any time looking for water. We need to keep topping up the water points a number of times a day.
