Some trail camera footage from Billy Billy creek


I had set a trail camera up Billy Billy creek on Corin Road four days ago. I picked it up early because the cold weather indicated snow was likely and there was a possibility that the area could be locked off from vehicle access. I had hoped to leave it there for a few weeks.

I put together a short video of the results..

A new scar on an old scar tree in Wanniassa


I spent a while this morning with Mark Parton, a local Tuggeranong MLA, visiting a few Indigenous heritage sites. After an inspection of the Theodore Grinding Grooves off Christmas Street we visited a few scar trees in Wanniassa.

Whilst visiting the canoe tree on Livingston Avenue Mark noticed a new third scar. Someone has recently, within months, removed a section of bark in traditional style from the tree.

The more I think about this the more disturbed I am. Couldn't they have chosen a tree not already scarred? Interestingly there is an Australian Federal Police notice stapled to the trunk so maybe there is an investigation underway.

I took some video
