Thanks to Robyn Sharp for the following photos and description.

We were alerted by a couple Council chaps that an owl was being attacked by Ravens & Maggie's.

 We tried to chase off the attackers and catch the Owl but had a lot of difficulty they were going to kill it.

 The Owl managed to go into the paddock out back and the council boys caught it, and took it to the wild life person, Denise, and she took it home to recover.

 Phoned her last night an...

Help make Wedderburn a Gazania-free town!

 

Gazania plants are a common sight around Central Victoria, including in and around the Wedderburn district. While many people appreciate it for the attractive daisy-like bronze, yellow and orange flowers that appear in Spring and Summer, Gazania is a serious environmental weed and we need your help to stop it spreading in our town.

 

Native to South Africa, Gazania was originally broug...

Golden Whistler Pair?

Posted by Barrie Taylor on June 17, 2015 at 7:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Weeks ago the female Golden Whistler paid us a visit but there was no sign of the male, until today, Monday 15th June 2015. As I was out side when he appeared I was only able to get one not so good shot.  After a short while, inside, sitting at the big window there he was again, he came right up to the window and posed, then as quick as he arrived he was gone.

Thanks to Robin Sharp for this post
