17th October

 Nine days after the fire and everything is still burned and black, of course. Has there been rain? Maybe a little...

 Lots of dead and fire-singed and browned/dried leaves falling now. A bit like brown snow...

 Then in just a few spots, some small signs of life. Grass pushing up and some shoots from tussock grass.

 Two echidnas burrowing under burned logs for bugs to eat.

 Strangely, some fungi determined to put its head up.

A few kangaroos and a wallaby sighted. They don't at this point appear to be fire-injured. We've put out water and lucerne (lucerne on advice of wildlife rescue).
