We finished today planting the last of our 150 trees from The Tree Project: black wattles, mallee wattles, sweet bursaria, manna gums and one or two other varieties that came to us without ID tags but seem to be doing all right! Thanks to Lex at the Tree Project.
Our tree planting efforts in the paddock were rewarded by getting to spend some time with our brown songlarks – two males in spectacular song flight! It took us a while to work out what this bird was, but we identified it from its distinctive metallic call.. First time that we’ve noticed them here, and they join the fan tailed cuckoo as recent additions to our farm bird list.
Stay tuned for some photos of the lush spring grass – helped on by liberal dosings of chook and cow poo!
