THE FOREST ANIMALS ARE THIRSTY AND HUNGRY

We haven't had rain for months. The forest grass is dying and the creeks are drying up. The wallabies are coming into the suburbs to find water and green grass. Here are a few in the dry forest.



The bird is trying to get water from the tap.

Just a little water left in this creek.

  1. It is so hard on the animals, the land and even the people when it doesn't rain for long. Currently we are having so much rain. Much more than usual at this time of year. I wish I could send some your way and I hope you get some soon.

  4. We have had it dry this month but nothing like what you're experiencing. It being winter there isn't it your wet season?

  5. I find it hard to imagine the hardships such drought can bring. It certainly isn't helpful, either, for me to say that we have just experienced the wettest August on record on Scotland. Hopefully the weather will soon even itself out again for all of us.

  7. So sad to see the bird at the tap seeking some water. I hope you'll soon get some rain.
    Here in Perth we had the wettest August in many years.

  8. It always amazes me how ingenious animals and birds are to survive in such conditions. Hope you have some rainfall soon.

  10. Very sad to see your drought. Another Australian friend recently posted photos of a devastating fire. Here is CO we are also dry but not to your extent. However, we had to call the police last evening because people at a rental near us started a huge bonfire. When things get tinder dry, it's time to use good common sense and not start fires for pleasure!

  11. What an amazing adventure. I feel like coming into a movie theater when the feature has already started. I'll just kind of fill in the blanks as I follow along.
    I like the title of the blog. Writing ... any kind ... probably keeps our minds fresh.

  14. With the dry returning I expect we will see lots of animals migrating to the roadsides again for food which unfortunately results in more road kill.

  15. Oh that's so sad Diane, I hate to think of animals suffering ✨

  16. We are also very dry and lots of water restrictions. I believe South Africa in many places is similar, and the animals are just getting thinner and thinner in many of the National Parks. We will see for ourselves next month but we are going to avoid the very dry places it sounds too depressing. Hope you are well. T'other Diane

  21. Sorry to read about the drought, Diane, and to see the effects on wildlife in the area. We have had a fair amount of rain here in NH this summer. Hooe your area will get some soon before summer arrives. And, of course, you should delete that soam comment preceding mine. Some people seem to have nothing better to do than annoy others.

  24. We had 35mm rain here in the Northern suburbs - the first since beginning of April so the dust has settled. We spent 3 months camping in South Australia earlier in the year and it was a sobering experience where water was concerned. We were mostly driving through dusty areas and experienced dust storms in several parts of the State. The dried up lakes would, according to the local people, never get water again, rivers were either dry or toxic green lifeless ponds and some small towns were trucking in water for their daily needs.
