Manager’s Report October 2014

Wild Photo of the Month As we sweep the 10th month of 2014 out of the door, just two months are left until we celebrate a brand new year. I can hardly believe that 2015 is just around the corner! I am happy to report that the bush is slowly, but surely recovering after the fire.

Manager’s Report September 2014

Wild Photo of the Month Spring is in the air and the landscape is slowly changing.

The bougainvillea bushes are also wearing their flower coats which you can...

Wild photo of the month We are now over the halfway mark of 2014 and it is unreal that we will be meeting 2015 in only 6 months! June was a mystical month with amazing sightings and some unexpected excitement as well! We had a pack of wild dogs in our area again.
