TIMES readers have been enjoying the scenery recently and sending photos of a variety of wildlife living locally.

Dee Tsalis took a photo of a big kangaroo and his mob in Yellagonga Regional Park recently.

“We are so lucky to still have kangaroos in our wonderful City of Wanneroo,” the Wanneroo resident said.

Doug Coughran sent in a photo of a male variegated fairy-wren during a recent coastal walk from his Padbury home.

“This species ranges from Geraldton to Eucla and from Geraldton to coastal extension near Perth,” he said.

“This population down the road from home is probably the southern most range and lucky to still be surviving in the Perth metro (area).”

Sailor John Bird took a photo of an osprey atop the pole at Hillarys Yacht Club last month.

“It looks quite wonderful with the setting sunlight falling on the feathers and the beady eyes,” he said.

Grandfather Joe Jackson sent in pictures taken by his grandson Mitchell (10), who lives in Clarkson, during a walk around Joondalup’s Blue Lake.

“He used my Canon camera; a good effort for a young chap,” he said.

“He is mad keen on bird photography, and takes after his Pop.

“Just shows the bird life around Joondalup is thriving.”
