Canning River Regional Park

Sunday 30 September, 2017
We had such a lovely walk after discovering Canning River Regional Park for the first time last week, we decided to go again on a different walking trail. Spring flowers were in abundance so here are a few more to add to the collection from the week before. I apologise for my lack of botanical knowledge – I have no idea what the names of the flowers are!

 

Sunday 24 September, 2017
I have lived in Perth for eight and a half years, and visited Canning River Regional Park for the first time today. The weather for this long weekend was dismal, but Sunday started fairly bright and dry so we decided to risk it and took a 20 minute drive to check out this park on the advice of a friend. And we were not disappointed. It was lush and green from all the recent rainfall and many areas were saturated with water which in the summer months would probably be dry and baked hard. So we were lucky enough to see it at its best in terms of the wildlife that the conditions attracted.

We took Millie the dog (pictured below in the car, anxious to be let out to explore!); dogs are welcome on a lead and it was nice for her to enjoy different smells for a change, although this resulted in multiple stops for more sniffing opportunities! Canning River Cafe is welcome at the end of the walk for coffee/tea and cake. We timed our walk perfectly as it started to rain just as we got to the Cafe!

Birdbath Antics

I have a birdbath in our front garden and for a long time it was devoid of much birdlife (unless they always visited when I was at work). But suddenly they seemed to cotton on to the fact that there was an ample and regular supply of water available for the taking, and now we get quite a lot of bird life visiting, not least the beautiful but very noisy Rainbow Lorikeets. They are funny to watch as they disagree with each other and jostle for prime position.
