Well we managed to get quite a lot done over the last week. We had to cut and polish the truck and also the van. Everything’s gleaming now which is how we like it. We had some pretty chilly mornings around 2 degrees, thank god we have 2 heaters, one in the bedroom and one in the lounge which get the van nice and cozy quite quickly in the mornings. The days have been fantastic though, big blue sky everyday. We’ve been down the range to our little bird hotspot at Redwood Park 4 times, we were so worried the first time as it’s so dry everywhere but soon as we walked down to the little creek we could hear lots of bird chatter. There’s a very small amount of water trickling down but it’s isolated to just a couple of small pools now. It must be spring fed, coming up through the rocks so we are so happy that these beautiful birds have this water source here. As you can see by the video and photos, there is a huge number of birds that visit this spot everyday and some of them like the silvereye’s and honeyeater’s are just constantly there, they seem to love bathing.

A short Vid featuring Mary Cairncross Park and Ewen Maddock Dam
Have always enjoyed Montville
We had a great 4 days back in Landsborough, the weather was fantastic and we managed to catch up with family there which is always good. We also visited some of our favourite places, Ewan Maddock Dam never disappoints and the view over the glass house mountains from Mary Cairncross Park is just fantastic. We walked around the park for a bit, couldn’t believe the bird sounds in there, we saw a lot of our old Aussie favourite birds, I don’t think I’ve heard so many whip birds in one place though. We found a great brunch spot at the Poets Corner in Montville. Honestly it’s nice to go out and have a nice cuppochino again and this cafe was so good we had two.
