A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.
Because of restraints on time, and let’s face it, only limited material on a small island, some posts are being recycled/updated from earlier.

It’s a hungry time of year.

You know that Spring is definitely here when the critters get hungry. The caterpillar above is munching on one of the shrubs in our garden, and it’s almost too pretty to do anything about (mind you, if it or one of its green cousins turns up on the silverbeet it’ll be different).

Another confirmation of Spring is the magpie below, which we rarely see for the rest of the year, but which has been turning up in Spring for around a decade now, fixing us with a fierce ‘death stare’ that makes Julie Bishop’s patented version look almost benign, and demanding mince for its babies. And with those eyes behind that beak, who’s gonna argue?
