List of animals encountered:
“Snake birds” (a creamy coloured cormorant like bird with a head that looks like a snake). These birds are nesting at the moment and we’ve seen many of the fluffy chicks craning their necks as the wait for their next feed.
Carp (the rats of the Murray)
Possums, including one (or more) that peed on our tent.
Brown snake that crawled past Tim’s feet and over the tent that Pippa was in.
Native water rats
To Do: obtain wildlife identification book. Identify good ways to prepare carp.
