18 07-10-2020 Entrance to school carpark walking up from Boyagerring Brook crossover. Snake sp. Wed 7 Oct 2020. I still have trouble with the calendar. Multiple reports Morning. Couldn't identify species- about 1 1/2 metres long. It was sunning itself in grass near large hollow log then slid into grate covering storm water channel. Beth Frayne saw probably the same snake the following day in the same spot that also slid down the grate. Peggy had mentioned about a month ago that she saw a snake in the same location and said it lived in the hollow log. Obviously a nice home for the snake - close to bush tucker and frogs.

20 05-10-2020 Wilkerson Rd, West Toodyay Eagle, Wedge-tailed A pair circling around an area where I�ve often seen them over the years. I suspect they have a nest used each year on the hill of the neighbouring property.
