Watching birds is always an interesting pastime but watching  flying gulls and their antics from above adds another dimension!

Concrete block with a style of its own!

Concrete block with a style of its own!

Around the back of the rear of a Brisbane Street shopping centre in Launceston CBD there is a concrete block building that was perhaps built in the 70’s. Buildings of this era were notoriously bland but this one has this panel that looks like concrete blocks stripped of their centre and turned on end. First thoughts cunjered up the possibility that the architect was creating a visual joke because of a personal disike of concrete blocks or perhaps he liked the idea of an Art Deco bracelet design to break up the monotony of a concrete block. Whatever it was its different to anything else in the vicinity.

Death toll: one night, one junction!

three possums and a Bennetts Wallaby all killed at the junction of Tamar Hiway and Cormiston Rd

Three possums and a Bennetts Wallaby all killed at the junction of Tamar Highway and Cormiston Rd last night. Someone took the trouble to pile these little bodies up for the council to remove before too many tourist start to complain!
On any level this mortality rate of our wild life is disgusting…

A found still life Euphorbia lambii
