Platypus Sighting

It’s been confirmed!
Three weeks ago I sighted a platypus on the Fairhill dam.  I was stoked of course but everyone that I spoke to bragging about the sighting doubted me with comments like; “are you sure”, “really” followed by mumbling something like “yea right Nick” and other remarks that are probably better left unsaid.
On the last Wednesday of every month there is a bird watching group (called the “Wednesday Club”) come to the gardens to see what birds they can find.  Last Wednesday as well as seeing 61 different birds they also sighted the fabled platypus.  And better than that – some in the group recon they are two platypi.  They were thrilled but a bit perplexed at my comment of “that’s confirmed”, I was relieved (it wasn’t my imagination).
Fairhill Botanic Gardens is a haven of sights and sounds and the addition of either one platypus or, even better, two platypi … well it makes it even better.
PS  If I manage to get a photo (with platypi that can be a bit of an ask) I'll past ot this page.
