Murphys Creek patch

Post by Mick Atzeni » Wed Oct 08, 2014 4:45 pm

Having a lot of fun building up the patch list at our new home in Woden St. I count anything heard or seen from our property.

Had a flock of Brown-headed Honeyeaters come through yesterday afternoon; heard a White-throated Nightjar calling last night in the direction of the Murphys Creek Primary School oval; and today, three Pacific Bazas flew over doing their "ee-choo" thing.

List now stands at 73.

Life's simple pleasures. :)

Cheers
