The Wattle is out in Sherbrooke Forest.
The Wattle is dotted all through the forest up here at the moment, large trees of yellow very pretty.
A viola hybrid on the forest floor this morning as well, a lovely soft lilac.
Kookaburra with a very long worm, they are so patient waiting for the worm to relax and then pulling back to edge the worm out of the ground. It takes at least 3/4 to 1/2 hour to get them out of the ground, some times the worm breaks, the worms can be up to 60-80cm long

So if you can not attend the meeting please fill in your proxy forms and send them to one of the committee members so that we can make the changes.
