How much do you know about seagulls? For a start, seagulls are not one species but many and they do not necessarily live by the sea. I knew very little about their lives until I researched the silver gulls of Hobart for a conference presentation.
Here is another photo of the garden I made at the back of our townhouse complex. I call it the Ragged Garden because it’s on the site of the former Lower Collins Street Ragged School that operated there from 1858-1914.
Hobart street artist and muralist, Jamin, has just finished two works on walls near the new University of Tasmania city accommodation building in Melville Street. They show a girl looking through a hole at an Eastern quoll. It’s great to see them emerge as we walk up a lane a few steps from Elizabeth Street.
