    Wingham Brush is a breeding sanctuary for Flying Foxes. There are literally thousands of them! It is also home to Brush Turkeys.

    What fabulous images, Nellie. They are wonderful!!! It looks to be a marvellous sanctuary for birds & other critters. Many thanks for posting them. That fig, in the third pic, has a terrific buttress root system. Very sculptural. (Is that a word??? ) That image of the flying fox is fantastic.

    PS Bruiser was having a race with me to see if he could post first, after I told him about this topic. :lol:

    Wow! nelbel. Lovely close ups of the flying fox.
    Those trees are wonderful too , you have touched a soft spot with me in posting them. That tree is huge, I see Joy called it a Fig!. Do you get many like that where you live or around there?

    I have read this post previously but lost it again, just found it! nothing unusual in my crazy day! thanks again for posting them

    There are several types of figs in Oz, Dawn. The ones that spring to mind are the magnificent Moreton Bay Fig, commonly found growing around our area, as well as north & south of here, in rainforests as well as feature trees in parks, etc . Another I can think of is the Strangler fig, also common around the region & it lives up to its name, too. :lol:
