Last Sunday afternoon Mick Atzeni, Jenny Matheson and I were walking along the creek's bank at 'Tiddalac', Upper Lockyer when a juvenile Bush-Hen broke cover at our feet, quickly crossed the creek then disappeared into the heavily vegetated nether bank. Jenny and I had a good but fleeting view of the bird. Mick missed it being more interested in the progress of a footie game on his mobile phone. He did manage the resident Platypus, however, which Jenny and I also had the good fortune to see.
