We’re in the throes of bathroom renovations. Outside it’s been wet and cold and not conducive to bushwalking. However, the jackhammering got the better of us and outside we went. We followed our usual trail but I remembered there were some paths we hadn’t explored so we decided now would be a good time to do so.
Fortunately, the tracks were quite clear, which meant less chance of picking up leeches!
We were surprised to find that this track followed our local creek but on the opposite side to that which is accessible from our place. Moozle decided to sketch a map of the area & record our sightings.
It’s breeding season for the Superb Lyrebird. A lovely living book (unfortunately it’s out of print) for younger children about this bird is, Silvertail: The Story of a Lyrebird by Ina Watson.
Last month, Moozle completed a free six week Natural Illustration course offered online by Edx.org.
One of her assignments was on ‘form drawing’ and she drew this possum. She wasn’t happy with the area between the body & the tail but she was a lot happier with her final assignment – a drawing of our cat. This took her a few days of trying to get the fur right.
