Back on the frog discussion, just went outside to lock up the chooks and there are 19 green tree frogs in one 5 metre sq area. They are going nuts croaking and can hear at least another 5 talking to the gang from 20 metres away.

Pleasurable reading the recent posts and amusing, as far as frogs go there is no shortage here
Cane toads are not doing well and that is a good thing. Geckos are far and few between with only a couple to cull
Another 43mm today and if we can keep this up we might hit average rainfall for January which would be good considering December gave us some 37mm......

Got one lonely male calling for a girl atm. Don't think he is having much luck though. Just a regular Tree frog though. Not a whitelipped version

I have to say that both GFS and CMC have been the most accurate this year at predicting rainfall for us. They too have been underestimating though. I really hope the trend continues because they are both saying wet wet wet.
EC has been way off so far.

The clip doesn't do it justice though. It actually hurt your ears.

Showering here agaim this morning but the radar is showing Cairns to Daintree is in line for a good whack of moisture today...

Getting close to the Cairns Jan monthly average already huh Brett..!

I don't know how you can sleep with all that ruckus Simmo..!
The frogs were noisy before this rain event but have quietened off since it started...

I had the rather unpleasant experience of being bit on the eyeball by a green ant this morning then he was trapped under my eyelid till I squished him..painful enough but I'm glad it wasn't one of those nasty black ones...

Ouch Scott!! That would have been horrible. I hope never to experience that.

A work colleague got stung on her eyeball by some kind of wasp a few months ago. The white of her eye went black for 2 weeks then was blood red for a few weeks, then yellowish and has slowly gone back to normal. Has taken nearly 3 months I think. Another thing I wish never to experience.

Radar is looking good.

just over 40mm, much closer to your tally today Wandjina.

Yep, still enough of Jan to go over average rainfall with the current conditions. Even a weak surface trough in the CS with SE winds = NTC showers for dayz.

Same here Pogo, had a very noisy frog in my aircon pipe straight outside my office until this rain turned up. Can hear plenty down in the gullys at night.

Wasnt successful last night but did get some rain Weary!

240mm for the week so far - so much more than predicted and not complaining. Wet weeks ahead and hopefully more widespread than this event for those inland and Tinaroo.

You beat me to it. I stopped by the swamp on Wilkinson Street Manunda this morning. Didn't get out of the car, so not as loud as yours Simmo.

455mms at Utchee Creek...for the month of January.
Everytime I go outside to say plant a rain forest tree or hack at guinea grass or pop a cutting in...I get wet. It looks fine but then it just suddenly pours down. Funny old tropics.
The creek has been given a good flush next door here and the sound of the waterfall cascade creek in the neighbours paddock has been deafening and hardly a frog sound here which I find alarming.
And hardly a toad either but what does show itself gets a nice squirt of Dettol.
Had my 16th tick attachment last week.
