Travels in the ACT, Australia 2008 Today we visit a nature reserve near to Canberra

In the early morning the light is blue and clear as Rosie leads the way on our walk through the bush.

What do we see? Over there among the trees. Two pointed ears and a pointed nose and eyes that watch us carefully.

Like shadows they stand, blending into a grey world. Still creatures among the craggy ridged gum trees

Through the bush we walk, then stop to listen and watch. We see ... And hear

We see a bright Crimson Rosella perched high in a tree.

And hear the sounds of birds calling to one another in the bush http://www.abc.net.au/archives/av/birds.htm#r http://www.birdsinbackyards.net/feature/top-40-bird-songs.cfm Find other Australian bird songs at:

On we walk, past termite mounds that hug trees

... and then we find one like this. What has been digging here?

The next day we find out. Here is the creature that made those holes. What can it be?

In the evening sunlight it crosses our path. Hears us and freezes next to the base of a tree. We keep still and gradually it forgets we’re there. It carries on looking for food.

Snuffling first this way and then that. It works its way among dead leaves and twigs looking for tasty creatures to eat. What is it?

It’s an Echidna You can find out more about Echidnas by looking on the following websites: http://www.amonline.net.au/explore/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echidna

Finally we reach the end of our walk. What’s happening here?

What’s happening here?

People are building a new housing estate around two sides of the nature reserve. Will the creatures who live here be safe?

How can the people who move into these house make sure that the creatures are safe? What would you do?
