A most exciting and interesting new year visitor. On 18 January, this Lace Monitor appeared in our garden in Boland Avenue, Springwood adjoining Birdwood Gully Bushcare Site. Elizabeth has lived here for thirty years and this is the first time she has seen one here or in Birdwood Gully. Its only rival for her in the thirty years was an Echidna which she saw some 25 years ago.
