Sit Diary Day 60 I noticed storm coming, raced down and battened down the hatches just before it hit.
Sit Diary Day 59 A flight of dragon flies came by in the grey light of dawn.
Sit Diary. very mild overnight, no need for thermals or beanie. Left half of roof tarp open last night to enjoy the weather & the moonlight.
Day 57 The Greater Glider, Glossy Black Cockatoo, Spotted Tailed Quoll, Yellow Bellied Glider and Masked Owl are all resident in Bulga Forest.
Day 56 “The enormous emotions as a guardian of the forests weigh heavy, but also as light as the swathes of mist clinging to the grey green hills, we are honoured to be here. “
Day 55, Finally some stars come out after so much cloud.
l see only 2 species of ant up here
Day 54 Good people still work all night rigging machines to tree sits with an amazing labyrinth of ropes & D-shackles only to get arrested and taken away by police simply in an attempt to save native forests from destruction.
Habitat destruction is the most powerful driver of biodiversity loss, to quote D. Attenborough from “Extinction”
“Please do make the effort. When the voices multiply they will be heard. No time left to procrastinate, it is the thief of time , time our wildlife and forests do not have. Let’s do this! End native forest logging now!”
Bulga Forest Sit Diary. day51
“Waking with a symphony of birdsong, to witness the artistic display of colour from a sunrise spectacular, is a mind blowing privilege and honour..”
Day 50 celebration of protecting this forest!
Last night was an enchanting celestial display. The air seemed especially crystal clear and still. Milky way stars sparkled jewelled light that silhouetted the towering trees beside this giant, making their leaves look like black filigree lace.
Light years apart but seemingly entwined as one.

In the purple predawn light, a microbat fluttered around the tent snatching it’s winged food from the crisp morning air.
