As we checked in at the office of the Riverview Caravan Park (Condolin, NSW), I noticed a flyer taped on the counter top. It introduced Billie and asked visitors to watch out for him while driving in the grounds. His mother had been shot a few months previously and the joey was being hand-reared by the caretakers – Mark and Ally.
We didn’t see Billie until the next morning. While his caretakers cleaned the BBQ, Billie hopped about investigating the new arrivals.
The pop-top caravan he is looking at arrived not long after we did. He came over and hopped about for awhile. Eventually he went back to the cabin end of the caravan park.
I took lots of photos and couldn’t decide which ones to share so you get the lot.
Our little dog, Vika, was not very impressed. She sees kangaroos about our place of a night and is a little frightened, I think. She gave a bark as soon as she saw Billie and we thought “Oh no!” but she pacified easily enough. She didn’t take her eyes off the young kangaroo and kept up a low growl.
These photos were taken on the Nikon D3000, but I don’t think I was awake properly. It was set on auto, and I may have messed with a focus setting because these didn’t turn out as sharp as I would have liked.
Just click on any image to go to the slideshow. They are cropped into all sorts of sizes.
Apart from a brief glimpse on the following day, we didn’t see Billie again. Tomorrow, I shall tell you about the Condo750 which was going on over the Easter weekend.
Have a good day. 🙂
