IT MUST BE THE TIME OF YEAR Everything seems to be on the move. Not only the snake but a fox! A young healthy fox was lounging on the lawn the other day and only looked at me and strolled away when i yelled and waved my arms at it. Next day i saw it bounding across the lawn towards the birdbath, luckily the little honeyeaters took off fast. But it appeared again a day later so now i'm about to head off and pick up a cat cage, friend bob says he 'deal with it' when it's caught.
it seems so unfair that stupid colonists brought these beautiful animals out here where they wreak havoc on our wildlife.
Then yesterday i was heading out the back door with an armload of newspapers and bottles for the bin, and almost stood on a brown snake slithering past. stuff went everywhere and i screamed and froze with my leg in the air, an accident waiting to happen. luckily i didn't miss the step and the snake took off under the house.
these are the little fellas that are at risk and i found a few feathers this morning.
