A Sandy Beach Almanac



You've landed at Sandy Beach, NSW, Australia: Lat. -30.15331, Long. 153.19960, UT +10:00 – local map & zoom Google map. I live in a cabin on this beach, 25 kilometres north of the traffic and shops of Coffs Harbour, 600 km north of Sydney. My intention is to post observations of Nature and life within 1 km (1,000 paces) of my South Pacific home.

John Gould gathers for the nest

I put some cut long, dry grass from the park into this philodendron planter as the birds are nesting. Unfortunately there is no longer an egg in the nest. I guess their first attempt at parenting was a failure (teen marriage), so maybe next season.

John takes this to the nest box in the bathroom, and he's been weaving a very nice nest -- much nicer than the earlier picture I posted, the one with the egg -- for when Lizzie does start laying properly.

Well, they're not really strict vegetarian I guess.
