The farm “Miro Park” was developed from ‘scratch’ over the past seven years and now has a large home, huge shed and is fully fenced – with a dam in a natural ‘dip’ which is set in a treed reserve that is fenced off from stock. 

It is in this reserve that the small group walked, meandering along the tracks in the mild, sunny weather.

Watching the pair of Wedge-tailed eagles soaring in the sky, above their nest, was a wonderful experience.

Although the bush area that we walked through showed signs of the drought, recent rain appeared to have had some impact – to the delight of some plant lovers (as well as bird lovers).

Moss and lichen made a wonderful, soft carpet – while fungi was sprouting from a natural fertilizer (kangaroo/wallaby scat)!


The pair of ‘resident’ Wedge-tailed eagles was the highlight of the 19 different species sighted. Their nest is in a tree within the reserve.
