Hello people, I can’t believe I forgot to do my Wednesday Walk post yesterday! I’ve been pretty good with it. I decided not to share the reservoir walk as I had this really eventful one recently.  Lots and lots of photos. This is one of our town walks – where we head over the footbridge and walk some back blocks. First up, in Argyle Street, a magpie lands on the power line and watches us.


We go past the Merino sheep, still unshorn.


A brief glimpse of a little silvereye…

I saw a fruit tree blossoming in a side orchard. Pretty sure it’s the first I’ve seen this season.


Mr. R. was somewhat amazed that I noticed a kangaroo reclining in a backyard from quite some distance … I think its ears twitched…


We had to walk up the hill before drawing level with the yard it was in…


I’ve photographed this kangaroo before, I’m sure. It’s the one with the damage around its right eye. It has made itself at home.

Wednesday Walk

A busy walk


On our final day at Rocklands Reservoir, this mother kangaroo finally let me see her joey.


Thanks for looking.

These pictures were taken back when I took the other kangaroo photos. There’s always one or two big ‘roos hanging about on their own. Keeping an eye on things, it seems.


When we had that small one in our yard, I wondered what they eat when there isn’t much grass about. Apparently they eat dried grass. After all, I suppose it’s like hay, except still standing in the paddock. They don’t like really scratchy stalks though, it hurts their mouth. Also, one can buy kangaroo pellets from stock-feed stores to feed starving animals. Handy to know.



Thanks for looking.
