# Date Location Species Notes
1 05-01-2020 Wilkerson Rd West Toodyay New Holland honeyeater Three of them at bird bath for a short time. In 17 years I’ve only seen them here a couple of times, and never more than one alone.
2 04-01-2020 Wilkerson Rd West Toodyay Raptor Not sure what it was. Initially thought it was a sparrow hawk but couldn’t see any striping or collar. Maybe a brown falcon? Sat quietly in several different trees. Little birds nearby making a frantic racket. It left when I tried to get a bit closer.
3 31-12-2019 Stirlingia Drive, Toodyay Cyclamen persiaum The natural range of Cyclamen persicum extends from North Africa across West Asia to Southeast Europe. In particular, the following occurrences are documented: In North Africa, the species is represented in the northern and eastern parts of Algeria and in northern Tunisia. In Western Asia, stocks were confirmed in Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, western Syria and western Turkey. In the eastern part of Greece, the only deposits in Europe could be occupied. Unusual weather conditions have prompted this garden plant to flower in December 2019 - out of season.
4 24-12-2019 Laterite Way Coondle Burrowing frog?? Our dogs were harrassing this lovely frog which has decided to live in the dry stack coffee rock wall below our house. It lives in a mix of local soil, gravel and yellow sand under the rocks. I gave it a rinse off to check they hadn't bitten it (no, thank goodness) and then put it under one of the plants in the wall. Immediately burrowed back down into the sand.
5 09-12-2019 Stirlingia Drive, Toodyay Owl, Southern Boobook (Mopoke) Not heard for some months
6 08-12-2019 264 Timber Creek Drive Black Cockatoo, Red tailed Around 6am while walking past 264 Timber Creek Drive. 5 birds eating the nuts in a marri tree.Slightly grey in colour. We saw the red tail on one large one. As they were largely behind leafy branches, we could not get an idea of whether the others might be young or mature, but none seemed very small.
