Lookout for Snakes and Magpies!
Advice from Parks and Wildlife
Parks and Wildlife service
Starting to really get a consistent amount of beautiful weather and nice sunny days which encourages us all to get out there and bask in it...rightfully so. However...there are at least a couple of things that we do need to look out for: swoopings by magpies and snakes lurking around.
Had a chat to Lyall from Parks and Wildlife in regards to some tips about this. Simply put, with magpies I was told if you see them swooping...avoid the area, they wont be doing this for too many weeks. As for snakes, they are actually more afraid of us then we are of them surprisingly. If you see one, stay away and walk slowly away.
