Random thoughts from an amateur Aussie naturalist.

Exactly three years ago I took a photo of the junction of the Moorabool and Barwon rivers at Geelong. Today I took another photo from the same spot. The eucalypts have grown nicely and it's going to be a beautiful spot when they've matured. I wonder what will happen if or when we get another flood - at the moment neither river is running. In fact a friend is getting concerned about the proliferation of mangrove seedlings on the mud banks in the Barwon estuary and, in particular, at the feeding grounds of the endangered Orange-bellied Parrot where the Barwon runs out of Lake Connewarre - he says the river desperately needs a flood.
