By: Michael Fox

Water, Food and Shelter for wildlife are the key to bringing a bit of Australian bush to our city gardens.

Some suprising wildlife is still surviving in Brisbane suburbs. What wildlife is benefiting from your Pollinator Link garden?

    We turned an old bath tub into a pond and put big rocks in it to give a deep end and a shallow end. I’ve seen all kinds of birds come to drink and bathe in it, as well as native bees visiting the lily flowers. It’s such an easy thing to do to give the animals a safe place to drink and cool off in summer.

    • What a great use for an old tub. How do you control the mozzies? Native fish?

        We put a few goldfish in the pond/tub originally, but they disappeared after awhile, so a bird probably took them (kookaburras are seen regularly here). But we haven’t noticed too much trouble with the mozzies, so something must be eating them.

    Were rather common outside Warwick and up the Brisbane Valley . Actually anywhere once you left a country town or settlement , they are always shuffling beside the bitumen roads or along a dirt track .
