A good reminder that the snakes seem particularly active this season. In the past 10 days I've seen seven, including browns  and red-bellied blacks and, at Nimmitabel, a good sized copperhead. Just be careful, let them go on their way, and it's a good idea to carry a snake bandage and know the basics of what to do if you or someone else is unlucky enough to be bitten.

Black-shouldered Kite was active around Dairy Flat Rd, then the Billabong within the Jerrabomberra Wetlands this evening, stopping for a feed on a dead tree.

A Little Eagle also spent some time in the same area with a rabbit in hold.

For reptile fans an Eastern Brown snake made a hasty retreat when I stepped beside it partially on the boardwalk on a blind corner, a short time later a Red-bellied Black snake slithered out at some speed, perhaps spooked by the Brown.
