    Debbie and the Creatures

    March 30, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    It's impossible to capture the wetness of the day as the remnants of Cyclone Debbie pass through. So far Byron Bay has got off lightly though the forecast is for much stronger winds overnight. A few miles up the coast towards Brisbane they've had an astonishing 15" rain. Schools are closed and there aren't too many tourists around. But some folk are still surfing!

    I've just been down on the beach (low tide) to see what's going on and I'll go over again later tonight to see what it's like as the wind picks up and the tide comes in (safe! 🙂 ). Just now I found a washed up bluebottle - as stung me last week. Other creatures featured are 'Eric/a' my local Eastern Water Lizard who lives under the lodges, taken yesterday in the unbearable heat and humidity. Finally 3 pics taken on Monday when I went back to Arakwal National Park. That's a Robust Striped Skink, followed by a Little Wattlebird and finally a Lewin's Honeyeater.
