Outing #13

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13: Day 10

(Sunday 9-November-2014) @12:42pm Junior has already paid a visit this morning, although he didn’t hang around the tent much because I didn’t put any food out for him. I thought about putting some pasta on to cook quickly, then decided not to bother: Not only has he had more than enough food from me in […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 9

(Saturday 8-November-2014) @10:18am So I’m just waiting for whichever lizards are due to come while I go about my morning caffination routine, when I had the thought to cook some lizard dinners when I’m in town next, then bring that down with me next time. I generally only get three nights in town so there’s […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 8

(Friday 7-November-2014) MONITOR MATTERS @4:25pm Well Broeski still hasn’t shown-up, though the new lizard on the block was back this afternoon for pasta which is no great surprise,  given the quantity of free food he pigged-out on yesterday. It’s pretty easy to tell whether it’s the same Monitor that stuffed his guts the day before […]

Outing #13 – Day 7

I get right up in Broeski’s face and score some absolutely gorgeous photos of him, including macros from 1cm showing the detail in the scales, while the bushfire still burns.

Outing #13 – Day 3 – The bushfire burns

I did I was surprised to read that the Rural Fire Service not only failed to contain the fire already, but it’s now dropped down into the Megalong Valley floor

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 2

(Saturday 1-November-2014) @12:22pm Last night I complain about the lack of wind, today I get wind in spades. I’m not sure what’s with all the thunderstorms but they have been a daily occurrence for the past two weeks or so now. The Bureau of Meteorology website says there’ll be a “chance of a thunderstorm” for […]

Outing #13 – Day 1

Last minute rushing to get shit stuffed in the pack and start heading out. Fortunately today, I missed the old Finnish dood so I got out without any lengthy

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Pre

(Wednesday 29-October-2014) Alright so this week I’ve got myself a minor upgrade to my wildlife-loving toolbox: a small, relatively inexpensive compact digital camera: a Nikon Coolpix 6800 with 12x optical zoom and wifi connectivity. Anybody who is even slightly tech-savvy will understand why switching to an actual camera is an upgrade over the one on […]
