Fauna

Under the trees and acros the rocks there is abundant wildlife.

Now and then one sees an echidna waddling along.

You can spot a kangroo with joey.

Then there are lots of shy little ceatures that are hard to capture on film

Birds

There are birds in abundance.

There is a keen interest in birdwatching among neighbours in the Mount Korong area and a rich diversity of birds is described for the Mount Korong Nature Conservation Reserve.

On Burrabungle Wedged-tailed eagles circle.

Or produce their young in twiggy nests

Other birds appear when they feel like it

The birds lay eggs in their own nests but also in the new boxes installed in the trees.
