STRIATED PARDALOTE

Striated Pardalote - Jarowair 18/09/07



This Beautiful Striated Pardalote had made a nesting hole in the dirt wall of the hole that was dug for the electricty to the shed.  It was a joy to watch it dart in and out of the hole. The pardalotes also made holes in piles of dirt that were piled up after the cut for she shed slab was created.

Water Tanks Arrive March 2007

06th March 2007

THE WATER TANKS ARRIVE

Finally, our two water tanks have arrived so that we can collect rainwater from the shed roof.  We have had a smaller tank connected to the shed temporarily in the mean time though, but these large tanks mean we can collect a much larger volume of water to help us through the drought.
