Glossy blacks

The she-oaks are spreading on Wordwood. This means more feed trees for the vulnerable glossy black cockatoos. Pete captured some feeding in the afternoon sun today. For more information about Wordwood’s fauna click here Wordwood Fauna

Owlet nightjar egg?

Spying in our next boxes Easter 2019, we came across an egg shell from an unknown critter. We think it might be from an owlet nightjar because it is the right size and we have seen them using our boxes in the past. Here’s hoping!

The Easter Glider

We just had an Easter camping weekend with friends at Wordwood.

We used a GoPro and a torch wire-tied to a stick to look into the nest boxes the same friends had helped us build and hang in a late 2016 camping weekend.

About six squirrel gliders were nesting in one of the boxes. Cute doesn’t begin to say it!

The waterfall I wish

Arrived at Wordwood today to find the dam dried up. It held on to bitter end. Chance of rain tomorrow …




Can anyone ID this worm please?

You can see from the paddle pop stick that it is GIANT?
