Records were broken as we had 200mm or 8inches of rain in one day – most of it (like 175mm) in 2 hours! I went down the next morning early to Obi Obi Creek to see what had changed. The flood waters had gone down dramatically, by about 3-4 metres but even so the creek was moving fast and much higher than I have seen it before, though I’ve only lived here for 18 months. The first shot is taken before the flood and the others after.
I have started a personal project on the creek that runs through town, Obi Obi Creek and the second day discovered not one but two active birds nests in the one tree. How good is that! I would never have seen them except for this project to look closer at something near to me.
