1 10-01-2021 Wilkerson Rd Pig, Feral At least seven. Three adults and four piglets walking up my block from the direction of the road towards the reserve. I reported them twice to BPCA last summer when there weren�t as many. Although they seemed interested nothing was done . Will report again tomorrow.
2 10-01-2021 Wilkerson Rd Kangaroo, Western Grey There are always kangaroos here but since this hot weather I�ve seen at least two big males coming for a drink at the back fence. Over the years I�ve been here the big males have not usually shown themselves.
3 10-01-2021 Wilkerson Rd Magpie, Australian About seven magpies were being very noisy and agitated downhill from the house. I couldn�t see what was upsetting them for a while then two wedge tailed eagles cruised over.
4 10-01-2021 Wilkerson Rd Butcherbird, Pied Singing beautifully in the mornings for the last few days. Not frequently here. This summer is really the first time they�ve come with any regularity.

16 28-12-2020 Wilkerson Rd Kangaroo, Western Grey Very hot day. Numerous kangaroos seemingly taking turns and lining up to drink all during the day. Several adult females with young, one large male, one female with a joey looking out of her pouch. Although I have several water points, they mostly favour the one at the back fence. They vary in their tolerance of me. Some wait close by when I refill the tub, and others dart away as soon as I walk outside. The big males seem the most jumpy (no pun intended).
