a possum release at Serendipity

At Serendipity we have been carefully restoring the property back to nature.  We recently had a release of a gorgeous blond brushtail possum at Serendipity to enjoy some of our hard work so far.

She was very keen to inspect her new abode from the safety of her supplied nesting box from Wilvos here on the Sunshine Coast.

Obviously good hunting grounds for small marsupials has seen this red belly snake (pseudechis porphyriacus) return on several occasions to seek out its prey on warmer summer days here at Serendipity.  Oh well, not all critters in a wildlife sanctuary are human friendly!

Pretty much ignoring me while I took the photos, except towards the end, when it decided it needed to show a bit more size in the form of its cobra pose.

a frosty sunshine coast

The Sunshine Coast is renowned for its sunshine of course.  This morning though in the farming hinterland there was a big frost creating a very

different landscape.  The air was fresh fresh fresh and the icy chill in the air exhilarating. It is now a much balmier 15 degrees here in the hinterland hills.

not the best weather for boating on the lake

I can still feel the wind blowing across Lake Cootharaba at Boreen Point on the Sunshine Coast.

who would you rather meet?

When wandering around outside here at Serendipity, some things are best seen from the back, heading in the opposite direction to you!

Check out those claws.

yellow looks so lovely on little birds

This eastern yellow robin has spent quite some time hunting for its prey down near the cottage in recent weeks.
