The wool has arrived

They are out early this year

The snakes don't usually come out for a couple of months yet but this one has woken early.

He had been hunting frogs in the creek outside the coffee shop, there are lots of frogs in there.  Every one looked on with big eyes and said they better check the chicken hutches and make sure that all the screen doors were shut so they couldn't get into the house.  Then some-one said that the snakes had got up to one of the eagles nests and taken their eggs.  Those eagles have moved house to another site.  It is almost time for all the young chicks to be born around the island.  Hope those parents are prepared.

I think I will watch my step coming up from the beach through the bush and I think that snake got something bigger than frogs.  He has some good sized lumps along his body.  He has a bit of food to digest there so that should keep him quiet for a while.

I would struggle to get used to such neighbours, I think!

I would want a pair of waders if I were to go for a walk on your island!
