Wildlife on the Farm

Aside from the dogs and cat we’ve met, there’s been a few unexpected appearances on the farm.

First up are the bloody awful Huntsman spiders. They’re not dangerous but they’re huge and love to pop up to scare the living day lights out of you. Our first encounter was when we were cleaning the packing shed and one darted out from a bucket. I’ve never run so fast. The second was on Jess and Luke’s caravan just chilling:


Next up was an insect that baffled us; it looked like a grasshopper but had massive antennas so we called Ant. Turned out to be a cricket, which was a bit underwhelming:


And finally, I’ll end on a nice note, a wee frog decided to join us in the tv room:


Still no snake sightings yet, but we are prepared if we do see one…
