    Definitely more caterpillars around in my garden (Brisbane). My chickens are moulting more severely than they ever have before: it seems rather strange that they have large bare batches of skin just as the weather is turning cold.

    Howdy, I asked our neighbour in Brisbane whether she thought it was a strange time of the year for the birth of her ducklings 12 weeks ago and she said definitely. Very strange.

    I’ve recently (In Wurtulla, Qld) noticed a Pee Wee collecting nesting materials in our yard – interesting stuff, huh.

    Mosquitoes are still eating us alive. Cane toads seem to be multiplying prolifically. And we still have snake activity in our garden. Caterpillars have eaten everything.

  5. Yes, our usually abundant garden at this time of year is suffering quite a bit from the heavy downpours we had in January through March, and now the incredible activity of caterpillars and grasshoppers, which normally have died down this time of year… The goose has in the mean time decided it has gotten too cold for her to keep sitting, but the insect activity is definitely greater than normal I think!
