With the return of good rain the Glenfern ponds are full of life. The audio was recorded this afternoon at around six pm. The photos are a potted history of the ponds concept, construction and established ponds. The frogs calling are brown tree frogs (Litoria ewingi) Their call is a series of rapid harsh, whirring pulsing notes repeated 5-15 times - "creeeeeee creee creee cree cree cree" and the common eastern froglets (Crinia signifera) which make a chirping "crick crick crick crick crick". Thank you to the volunteers who have spend so much time on this project.
Glenfern volunteers at our Bushlands Restoration on Saturday. We worked on the "old quarry" area - now transformed to a beautiful and peaceful spot in the middle of our bushlands. Photos of volunteers busy with activities during the morning.

This morning we did a little maintenance at GVB. Gravel was laid, the main gate and fence were re-painted and the picnic table was sanded and stained. Thank you everyone, it was a most enjoyable morning. I hope our President approves!
