News Snippet 7 September 2012

Driving in the day with headlights on in the bush!!! Have you ever heard of something so absurd here on the reserve? That’s what’s happening today – the sky is down to the ground, thunder rumbling all around and last night the skies were lit up with sheets of lightning every now and then. Looking out of the office windows now I can hardly see the lathe fence at the edge of the garden – that’s how dark it is! It rained right throughout the day and night bringing us another 18mm here at the office and 8mm at the gate. This is such a contrast but has been the pattern for the last number of years. Due to the rain no one has been driving so no sightings to report on today but will hopefully be able to give you more news next time.
