Scrubbing out

“The sound of birds stops the noise in my mind…”

Carly Simon

The Cox Scrub Conservation Park is 55km south of Adelaide, near the pretty town of Ashbourne. The land was bought from Mr V Cox in 1969 and declared a conservation park in 1980. Mr Cox kept the land undeveloped to assist with the overwintering of his beloved honey bees. The area remains largely untouched and is an important site for the endangered mammals, Isoodon obesulus (Southern bandicoot) and Rattus lutreolus (Eastern swamp rat). Readers of this blog will be aware that our visit had different quarry. Birds abound here. My wife was fortunate enough to snare a beautiful photo of a Golden Whistler on her first trip to the scrub. #happywifehappylife #letsmakelemonade
