Gosh A Goshawk!
We've been enjoying the company of visitors over the last couple of weeks. Firstly Mel and Sheila came down earlier this month, here they are at the lookout at Lowlands Beach. And today we said goodbye to Michelle who spent a lovely five days with us. She doesn't like to have her photo taken so you'll just have to imagine it :-)
Here is Lucy and her new joey, who is now venturing out of the pouch for short periods. We have named the joey Rabbit, can you see the resemblance?
And here is Rabbit a week later, looking bigger and stronger, having a good old scratch.
And here is the poor little disabled joey, who I've named Hook. He is coping quite well considering his leg and is starting to hop short distances, albeit very lopsided. His mum looks after him very well.
The teenage boys are feeling their oats and enjoying plenty of mock battles. This is the first time I've seen a threesome though!
We ventured out to Sculpture Park on the other side of Albany near Lower King. It's wonderful, a property filled with wood carvings. The carver has an amazing eye to be able to turn ugly stumps of wood into amazing things.
