We'll sit it out amongst all the green stuff

Go to a cyclone shelter? Nope, we'll sit it out amongst all the green wet stuff, thanks very much. Comb-crested Jacana (Irediparra gallinacea) male and junior in pre-Ita sunshine on front lagoon at Tyto Wetlands.

But Ita's done what Yasi couldn't: sprung an old leak in my old caravan ceiling. Hah, we laugh at moist lino. A few more hours gusting and and Ita will be pouring south of Ingham and all should be well, if somewhat flooded here and there.

Quick! QUICK! Get some silicon and seal that roof asap. I'd hate to see you and your photos washed out from right there!
Getting a clear photo of a Jacana has been a wish of mine for years! Great photos as usual Tony.

Thanks, mick. All dry again so the Selastic's back in the cupboard. You'll have to come up this way and sneak up on the Tyto Jacanas.

Brown Snake proves an obliging subject

Wonder of wonders! Went out today geared up for snakes rather than birds and found an obliging 1.4m Brown Snake waiting patiently for me. ...
