We can't walk down the street without being dive bombed by a magpie....little blighters. We had one safe route to the shops on foot, now apparently that has been compromised too...great!
We have to watch out for these. The Bungendore area is known for Tigers Snakes. They are venomous. We had one in our backyard when we moved in and are quite often sighted at the school...nice!

You hear the distinctive call of the plover....I pity the poor sole who marks the nests with little flags in the grass around the building where I work...they have a spur on their wings...nice!

We also have one of these, a blue-tongued lizard, which we do like. They eat the snails. They don't bite unless you pick them up but they just give you a fright when they are rustling around the garden.

Spring...if only we could enjoy the lovely weather a little more :) T
