20/11/2015 – Bundaberg, Queensland
After an incredibly tiring journey, plane from Perth 00.10am to Gold Coast 7.00am, bus to train station 8.20am, train to Brisbane Central 9.30am, Tilt train to Bundaberg 11am, arrive in Bundy 3.30pm.
Here is Rose’s beautiful house in Bundaberg, her and husband Mal have only been there for a few months and are already licking it into shape.
From the back, showing 4WD and new boat. The house is on about 2 acres, so they have plenty of room for visitors!!! (and chickens).
View from the back verandah, lovely pool and plenty of room.
Here is the fish that Mal brought home the first day after a mornings fishing – and very nice it was too.
Eggs on the front lawn closely guarded by attendant plover couple.
These birds were incredibly good at guarding their eggs, this is as close as I could get to them and dad warned me that they would actually attack if I pushed them
Masked Lapwing, formerly known as the Spurwinged Plover, they are well known for their aggressive habits and penetrating calls. They have sharp, black-tipped yellow bony spurs on their ‘shoulders’ and these are used against predators (and over enthusiastic photographers).
