In January 2013 the Warrumbungles was devastated by severe bush fires. The landscape was in tatters. Visiting there in July 2013 was sad indeed, although there were signs of recovery as this earlier post shows.
In going to the Warrumbungles in July this year there was indeed a changing, growing post fire landscape. Sadly it will never be the same as before the fires. One thing which is noticeable two years on is the quiet. There are a few birds singing their way through the day, but not as many as you would expect in this once diverse landscape.
Nevertheless the Warrumbungles are not going to give up!

The Australian bush: a treasure chest of native jewels
Look up, look down and all around
Listen to the feedback: the whim of a breeze, a twitter, slither or squeak
Breathe the air, feast on the colour
So get on out and take a peek

you thought you could destroy me
in this January just gone
your licking flames and searing heat
panting for the signal of defeat
I did not surrender to your call
my strength is now returning
green tips are young and eager
birds upon my branches as yet so meagre
silence lingers in the ‘Bungles
no chirping chomping or chatter
no hikers campers or forest friends
until the day our nature mends
Rains have come to the rescue and recovery is happening. The silence on the walks is eerie, awaiting the return of the creatures to the Warrumbungles.
