A couple of cute paintings of a Kangaroo and a Galah that I did a few years ago are now up on display in our house!
Last Thursday was the first Tid by Torchlight tour run by Conservation Volunteer’s Naturewise Conservation Holidays at Tidbinbilla. As it was the first trial run of this tour we got to go along to experience it. It offers a great evening which even includes a bbq at the Visitor Information Centre. The walk itself was pleasant […]
Last week at Tidbinbilla we came across a Southern Boobook Owl within the Sanctuary, so with it’s shape in my mind I made this image in my day off yesterday! Such a cute owl, I hope I get to see it again…
