Beige Nemertean Worm
Identified as Argononemertes australiensis on Bowerbird by Dr Leigh Winsor: "Reiner's excellent images are of one of the four Australian species of nemerteans or proboscis worms, Argonemertes australiensis. The photo of the head clearly shows the numerous eyes, the character alluded to in the genus name, from Argos of the Hundred Eyes, in Greek Mythology. Reiner's specimen exhinits the most commonly encountered colour and pattern - pale cream to dark-reddish brown, darker at the head end. The pale blotches present along the sides of the specimen are ova showing through the translucent tegument. The nemerteans crawl, like land planarians, by a combination of fine cilia on their belly, and internal muscles. If disturbed, the nemertean may evert its sticky proboscis with lightning rapidity; this sticks to litter or similar material, then the worm rapidly pulls its body over the proboscis as an escape reaction from the perceived threat. The proboscis is armed and is used to capture and kill prey that comprises small arthropods such as collembola in the same micro habitat. Argonemerteas australiensis has been found is a variety of habitats from the coast to alpine plains, and dry sclerophyl forest to temperate rainforest in the Cool and Cold temperate regions of the Bassian zoogeographic subregion. An account of the species and references to the literature can be found in the book Worms to Wasps by Harvey and Yen, and more recently on page 16 in Melbourne's Wildlife published by Museum Victoria and CSIRO."

Rough-scaled Snake (Tropidechis carinatus)

Description

Almost stepped on this one – he leapt one way and I leapt the other, thinking it was the resident Yellow-faced Whip Snake and feeling indignant about him reacting like that when he sees me regularly - then I noticed the black pattern…uh oh…this is a Rough-scaled Snake, who apparently “...has relatively large fangs and highly toxic venom with coagulant, neurotoxic, haemolytic and cytotoxic properties. One human fatality has been attributed to this species, and anyone suspected of being bitten should seek urgent medical attention.” (Australian Museum).
I saw one of these the first morning after we moved in here many years ago. It slipped away across the unfenced boundary in the front yard and I called out to warn a neighbour who happened to be standing not far away. He just smiled and said there were lots of snakes here and I remember thinking ‘it’s a healthy place where there are lots of snakes’...yep, a very healthy environment indeed!

Pair of Large-billed Scrubwrens began sitting on last year's nest outside our kitchen window, behind the frame of a wire pot plant wall basket in early September. 3 chicks all successfully flew 7th October. Seems very quiet outside the kitchen window now, but lots of little birds in the bushes.
