A little while back the path edges were cleared of vegetation beyond the southern end of the tunnel, and a brush turkey is doing what turkeys love most, digging up the litter. I came across this fellow on my way back from a service at Civic Bikes. The turkey seemed oblivious to passing humans, though he would occasionally run away when no one was near ! Meanwhile, at least one poor road cyclist had to carry his bike over the pile of litter kicked onto the path !
There is a small lagoon around the Whitebridge/Kahibah area that is frequented by water birds and geese. On this day one was crossing at its own pace :
I haven’t photographed any snakes or lizards actually on the path but they are there. Here is a Goanna that rustled up a tree as I passed through Belmont swamp. I recently saw a large red-bellied black snake disappearing off the path at the Belmont end, they are fairly timid I think.
