Did you notice? It’s a first for us, but the cover this issue doesn’t feature a regular critter as is usual. This time we were all fascinated by the beautiful shots of John Cooper’s incredible fungi article this issue and we couldn’t resist wielding one on the cover. It might not be animal, but it’s wild and living! We trust it captivates your imagination as it did ours.
We are constantly trying to improve the magazine and have recently started implementing some new themes and ideas for our readers, starting with the covers. Last issue’s healing was a first with an actual person sharing the spotlight! We had great feedback on that issue. Was it Don Hany himself or the dozens of free movie passes that got everyone excited?
Keeping up with all the activity has meant we have been running behind schedule more than usual this year. We appreciate your patience with us while we are working to claw back some time.
Winter is upon us. We take this opportunity to reveal some of the winter aspects of our environment. John Cooper presents the gems of our habitats, the fungi, in an unexpectedly unique and very colourful article. In a John Cooper double we also look at another novel experience with raptors interacting in raptorial encounter and the mysterious and delightful King Island gets a visit by Steve McNeil as part of our Secret Places regular.
There is plenty more this issue, including a fence post rosella nest, a Manfred Zabinskas’ seagull rescue, an article on the aftermath of wildfires, and the usual great shutterbugs and secret sightings top off a very unique issue we hope you enjoy.
As we all get wrapped up for the winter months, enjoy the amazing environment and still try to get out and about in our wildlife habitats. If not, we’ll try and take you there.
