WILDLIFE

PLEASE SEE ALL THE INDIVIDUAL DROP-DOWN MENUS and NEW SUB-MENUS

This page has been reorganised under the general heading of WILDLIFE and now excludes BIRDS which have their own pages and sub-pages. I have added (Nov 2104) a Raccoon taken by Becky. I’ve never seen one, though they are around and they are a problem for the ground-nesting parrots in the National Park. There’s nowhere else it comfortable fits. Here is perfect!

The WILDLIFE drop-down menus otherwise remain as before:

It’s also worth having a look at the BOOK REVIEWS and ARTICLES & DOCUMENTS posted in the sub-menu under BOOKS etc

Here are her simple diagrams to demonstrate to system (props to SOIMF)
