G'Day!! Back from Down Under!

No prizes for guessing where we,ve been for the last few weeks....... !


Kookaburra...


All together now, aaahhh!....


Six banded Angel Fish ........


Salt-water Crocodile- we didn't get so close to the big ones! ...


Grasshopperus Asbigasmefingarus - or it maybe the subspecies biggerthanthumbius!

After a truly fantastic holiday (there are 100's more photos so I may periodically reminisce on quieter/ horrible rainy days!) it was back to earth with a bump, good to know that blogger hasn't changed, its taken me two days to get online!
Aylmerton didn't disappoint on my first day back with an early morning walk up the track producing a pair of Red Deer on one side ( one being a stag now growing new antler's) and a Roe Deer feeding on the other. It was also nice to see a couple of Brown Hares after being scarce for a couple of years. The other mammal seen had alas been dead for a while, a Mole. We all see what they leave behind but not many people have seen its culprit especially alive. Was taking some stone walling down in the garden, carefully as usual, with good cause because there were at least 6 baby presumed Smooth Newts tucked away in there.

Wow! Kookaburra and Koalas ... beautiful photos. Looking forward to more when Aylmerton is quiet.

Glad you've had a good holiday!
