Working yesterday on a ridge, working along the edges of emerging rain forest, 2 termite mounds.

Snakes and goannas are already on the search for food.

Antichenus

The antechinus lives here, in the cavity beneath the corrugated iron roof.  just the last week there is much activity at night as they chase each other round the ceiling, very annoying when they wake me up at three. But to watch them, as the mothers carry their young on their back as they scurry across the underside up a beam. I marvel at them so hope a balance remains here for them to survive. Owls feed on them as does the python who lives under the verandah during winter.

All of our problem.

I do not have rubbish collection here. Visitors take out what they bring in. My main problems is in tofu plastic and cheese. Oil containers are re filled and I take paper bags for dried goods. Some glass I save, for cordials ect.

But its still a problem, what goes where and to the best outcome for the environment.

Food we are eating.

Australians are eating the RoundUp chemical ‘glyphosate’ for breakfast and parents are unknowingly feeding it to infants in baby food.
The so-called ‘safe’ weed killer ingredient, which has been linked to cancer and sparked multi-million-dollar law suits, has been detected in grain-based foods by Australia’s food standards agency.
Glyphosate was found in multi-grain, wholemeal, spelt, rye and white breads, savoury biscuits and crackers, and rice-based breakfast cereals, flours and crackers in Food Standards Australia New Zealand’s (FSANZ) latest Total Diet Survey.
It was also found in infant baby cereal, which is a rice-based product usually offered as a first solid to babies learning to eat.
Cereals and cereal products – in particular bread – was the “major contributing food category to glyphosate dietary exposures” for Australians, and for babies it was infant cereal.
However the food standards agency said glyphosate levels were well below accepted dietary limits and concluded there was “no public health and safety concerns for most substances”.
The 25th Australian Total Diet Survey sampled 88 foods for a wide range of herbicides and pesticides and found contaminant levels were “generally low, with a large proportion of food supplies containing no detectable residues”.

Ideal working conditions.

With many follow up areas to re visit , to remove re growth of lantana and evening primrose, I get side tracked by the sheer beauty of the trees.

 

High up in the pencil cedars, numerous birds nests.
