This is my second post from Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, near Canberra.
We would have been happy just seeing the kangaroos from my first post, but our next encounter was with an Australian crane in the rain in the Sanctuary Enclosure. This large, beautiful bird is known as a brolga (grus rubicunda).
Also in the enclosed area were some koalas. Koalas can be sleepy animals, comfortably cuddling trees, but we were lucky enough to see this one on the move.
Their bodies seem much longer when they are climbing, until they reach the top and squash back down again.
