February on K’gari

Hello! It is nice to “see” you again.

This post is about  my family’s observations during February on K’gari.

  • This is CYCLONE SEASON: Yepoon up north got hit by cyclone Marcia, we did not have much here except rain on Thursday and sun on Friday when the cyclone actually hit!! We did notice lots of rubbish on the beach though, Nature telling us it was time for a clean up!!
  • We had big tides, the second biggest of the year on 19th!
  • Mangroves are flowering: we saw our first mangrove flower at Deep Creek when pulling in crab pots (containing no crabs!)
  • Turtle hatchlings are emerging and I saw my first baby turtle!
  • Nautilus shells were washing up at the start of Feb.
  • Big, wild seas around the time of the cyclone.
  • We have noticed more crows around in February then in other months.
  • Goanna’s were visiting our yard a lot in the early part of February.
  • Lots of jellyfish have been around in February, especially blue bottles.
  • Lots of March flies in the wrong month!!
  • Lots of sand balls made by little crabs 🙂
  • Beach primrose is flowering – this is a new bush food for us, the petals are yum!
