# Date Location Species Notes
1 15-01-2022 Stirlingia Drive, Majestic Heights Fox; Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) 7.30am Magpies feeding on ground became upset and gathered together in jam below house. When a raven joined in I had a closer look and a young fox was slinking along our fire break. Took off onto the farm when it saw me.
2 14-01-2022 Wilkerson Rd Fantail, Grey; Rhipidura fuliginosa These birds are regular visitors here. Usually are around most of the day but especially morning and late afternoon.
3 14-01-2022 Wilkerson Rd Fairy-wren, Splendid Seen daily for the last few days. One male in breeding colours and three others, with blue only on their tails. They arrive together so I assume they are a family. They use the water dishes on the ground in the back yard.
4 14-01-2022 Wilkerson Rd Robin, Red-capped Briefly at water dish in the back yard.
5 13-01-2022 Wilkerson Rd Robin, Western Yellow Today and yesterday in the back yard. Not seen often.
6 10-01-2022 Wilkerson Rd Euro Quite a large one at the water trough outside the back fence. Have only seen a few here over the years. Beautiful rich dark brown. Didn�t stay long. Very hot weather.
7 30-12-2021 Stirlingia Drive, Majestic Heights Black cockatoo, Red-tailed Had not heard for a while. Pair
8 30-12-2021 Stirlingia Drive, Majestic Heights Sparrowhawk, Collared Pair of birds hanging around.
9 30-12-2021 Wilkerson Rd Monitor, Black-tailed (Varanus tristis tristis) Found in the bath after I�d been away for a couple of days. So I don�t know how long it had been there or how it got inside. It wasn�t the large one which hangs around. I released it outside.
10 27-12-2021 Stirlingia Drive, Majestic Heights Robin, Scarlet Having a bath in the bird-bath. Photographed.
11 27-12-2021 Parkland Dr Julimar Wallaby, Black-gloved The black gloved Wallaby came to the bird bath to have a drink around 5.45pm. Spent at least 10 minutes drinking, then in no hurry to leave moved around the sparse bush in that area trying out plants to nibble on (prickly moses). The bird bath was located about 7 metres from the house. It had been over 40 for the last 4 days. Photo taken
12 26-12-2021 Stirlingia Drive, Majestic Heights Robin, Scarlet Have not seen or heard this robin for a number of years (have the red-capped in winter). Hot day (44 deg C forecast)
13 25-12-2021 Stirlingia Drive, Majestic Heights Black Cockatoo, White-tailed (Carnaby's) A pair drinking from bird bath in car park. We have not seen them drinking at our place in the 34 years we have lived here, although they do pass over and often stop for a few moments in the trees behind our house. Photographed, but not well focused. 42deg C temp today.
14 21-12-2021 Wilkerson Rd Weebill; Smicrornis brevirostris Numerous birds darting around the quandong tree, until I filled the bird baths, then they all headed there.
15 21-12-2021 Stirlingia Drive, Majestic Heights Echidna Filmed on sensor camera near the bottom step next to our house (and next to where the cat trap is. Lucky it was not caught in trap). At 11PM.
16 20-12-2021 Wilkerson Rd Monitor, Black-tailed (Varanus tristis tristis) Wandered across the front veranda. The adult one.
17 20-12-2021 Wilkerson Rd Lizard, Shingleback; Bobtail; Tiliqua rugusa A regular visitor. I think it�s a female and is possibly pregnant.

19 20-12-2021 Wilkerson Rd Froglet, Glauert's (Crinia glauerti) Two in the bath again. I think I�ve found approximately 15-20 so far this summer.
