Woodlands restored!

By 3 May, 2013

TAMS are letting you all know they’re busy revegetating and placing woody debris:
“Since European settlement, Canberra’s woodland communities have diminished and become highly fragmented due to urban growth and development, making it difficult for animal populations to move across the landscape,” Mr Iglesias said.
“A project has been underway since 2011 to reconnect these woodland communities [...]

Rainbows at the Pinnacle
A tree down there had a about 20 little rainbow lorrikeets in it a couple of mornings back. Lovely little fellows, shame I didn’t get a good shot of them. Not that common around here are they?

Dog burial in Canberra nature reserves?

By 12 January, 2013

We had to have our old mutt put to sleep before Xmas.
A combination of ill-health, blindness, and the heat of the season, reduced his quality of life to the point where it was kinder to have his troubles ended. We had him cremated, and have his ashes in a pot. As we spent many happy times, [...]

Has there ever been a nicer morning?

By 4 April, 2012

Canberra was one happy town as I rode into The Eagle’s Nest this morning.
Is it just because the summer was so awful? Or was this morning particularly magical in its own right?

Profundity at the Pinnacle

By 1 February, 2011

While walking the dogs at the Pinnacle, as is my wont, this morning, I came across Canberra’s latest and most exciting venture into the public arts. Situated just off the track above the public lease which over looks William Hovell Drive, it is bold, confrontative and rather excellent. It consists of five stainless steel posts [...]

By 19 May, 2009

On one of my all too frequent jaunts around that place of beauty which is the Pinnacle Nature Reserve the other day, I noticed that the kind people of Environment ACT (I presume it to be them in any case) have signposted the tracks there. I wonder if the names were made up to enable [...]
