9 27-07-2020 Wilkerson Rd Tricoryne elatior; Yellow autumn lily Quite a few, but not as many as usual. Maybe a bit early yet. Also green hood orchids, blue fairy orchids and a couple of different fungi. An extremely old and big wandoo has toppled. It appears to have been mightily attacked by termites. Almost every branch has been tunnelled into, even the top ones.

11 27-07-2020 Wilkerson Rd Pig, Feral Didn't actually see them but a lot of evidence they've been here. Fresh droppings on what appeared to be a trail. Lots of dug up areas, including a few quite large holes. I thought I heard them yesterday running downhill not far from the house but couldn't see them. I'll report them, for the third time.
12 26-07-2020 Wilkerson Rd Various Not sure what they were. Two briefly flew over the house but were too high to see well. Not wedge tails. Maybe either square tailed kites, whistling kites or little eagles. I�ve seen little eagles here before but not either of the others. Also the usual splendid fairy wrens, grey fantails and assorted honeyeaters
