We’ve had a bit of rain.

This year has been a wet one so far with about 2.5 times the rainfall we had this time last year. On Monday morning my area saw about 55mm of rain fall in 3.5hrs. This made the stream into my property start to flow and all my ponds and dams fill right up and flow into the river nearby. So far at the beginning of May we’ve had our average rainfall to the end of May. I took a few pics.

Thanks. I dont have marron but I reckon we have koonacs. Down in the King River there are definitely marron. The King River is about 300m from my property. If I had flow all year round I reckon I'd have marron, but they're pretty picky about where they want to live.

You certainly live in a nice spot mate, looks great.

It’s the earliest I’ve ever seen the water flow in and fill the place up. Normally it fills up in the mid part of July. Last year it didn’t happen until August 4th about 3 weeks after a mega frost event. To have it happen on May 3 is very early. Now I have the place loaded with water, the water will more easily create a temperature buffer on a cold night.

You have a really beautiful corner of the world there, thanks for the photos.

We are coming out of the dry season, hoping for rain tonight and tomorrow.

 

When the rains start, sometimes we experience the walking catfish.
