After an absence of cattle at the farm (between Murrumbateman and Gunning)
for a few months over summer I've noticed Indigofera australis coming up in
places I have never seen them before in large numbers.  In a few weeks they
have been stripped bare by some agisted stock.  I know Indigofera is
widespread, fairly common and tougher than old nails but I wonder what else
suffers?  I wonder if the cows got enough would they be poisoned?

Anyway there's a few robins getting about and I love watching the Brown
Treecreepers foraging on the ground with Speckled Warblers.  Anyone else seen
this before because this is at least the second time I've noticed it?

>From what I have seen of the various cattle grazing experiments around
Canberra they have not done much harm to the environment nor a great deal to
reduce the bushfire hazard.  I'd be more concerned about the controlled
burns that will be instigated to protect residents of the new suburb being
built against the boundary of Mullies.

Perhaps a little bit of this loot could be put into rebuilding the big dam?
The breach in the dam seemed to coincide with the departure of brown
treecreepers from that area?
