It’s winter here in South Australia and cold so there aren’t many insects about, few insects means few of their predators. There are some lizards I know I can find because I’ve discovered their refuges. When the sun warms the ground there are hundreds of little Skinks around here but I don’t know where they go when it’s cold.
I was cutting out some Ivy today at an Adelaide city townhouse less than 100 metres from what will be a racetrack on the weekend. I was startled when something flew out of the Ivy and past my face but I’ve a feeling that will be minor compared with the Owl’s experience when the Clipsal 500 V8 Supercars start roaring along East Terrace in 4 days time.
