On the way to the plains, we passed through some old logging areas, which are now reserved for the Wedge-Tailed Eagles as a nest was found about 10 meters from the road!
There was a natural spring near our campsite and the area is full of little creeks and ponds. The endangered species in this area are a small fish (Clarence Galaxis) and Sphagnum moss. I saw my first wild quoll which was leaping about a few meters from our camp. A few of us walked off to Lake Ina which has sandy banks and was just like standing on a beach.
There are a lot of spiders in this area, with webs and burrows everywhere. I saw 4 or 5 different species but some were too swift to capture on film. Oh and I did end up finding some skull-bones too – from a wombat.
I also found this little cocoon thing and I am curious to know what it belongs to. I think its made of silk but what emerged from it? Any ideas?
