I normally use Tea Tree Oil but had Difflam anti inflammatory at hand the other day and I found that it seemed to work better than the normal anti itch type products.


Thanks Hiking Noob...I've got itches on itches now, a few leeches attached themselves & sucked away under my socks during yesterday's watery adventure. :wink:

Well, of course it’s grey when you show a monochrome photo!

Our farm, dam wall, wattle tree, fell over a few weeks ago. Retrieving it today for firewood.
This was found in a top branch. Most likely a fairy wren, judging by the eggs and the nest - plenty of them around the dam. Very small eggs!
Other guesses (eg thornbills, weebills) have different nest shapes and/or egg colours.

Bumped into one of the neighbours today. Sorry for the crap photo, digital zoom on my phone is very ordinary.

Nice gum tree, but is there an animal in the photo? If so, where and what? (Genuine Q)

Yes it's a Koala. Sorry, I should have been a little clearer on what it was.

Spotted this guy just sitting in the bush. We slowly approached but it didn't move. Mum on the other hand took off at a rate of knots from a tree just behind this young one. We didn't even notice mum until she took flight and disappeared very quickly. Suspect it may be a baby Powerful Owl but hard to tell as it's chest feathers were still downy in appearance.
