Connecting you with Nature

Powerful Owl, image by Simon Mustoe
Edition #50 Powerful Owl


It's our 50th edition!!

Not long after we began Wildiaries and started sending you our digital magazines, we also met Jaime, Felicia and Marina. In January 2014 they performed a house concert for us in Melbourne. 

We strive to support the cross-over between nature and culture so when the artists returned as Belle Miners in 2015 we invited them back and have enjoyed  their ever-increasing success since.  

So we're excited in this edition, to give you gift of LISTENING FOR FREE to the album "Powerful Owl", care of TheMusic.com.au and we invite you to Buy the Album (digital or CD), and maybe even come to one of the LIVE concerts between 3-28 January

We thought we might as well introduce you to the real Powerful Owl, so we've written a short article about these incredible urban birds including a video by Melbourne Tree Care, who have come up with an innovative way to protect the habitat of this endangered bird. 

Because one flew over a Belle Miners evening performance once, they became the inspiration for their album. How can you not be intrigued by any owl, let alone a huge 'powerful' one? They perform their hooting 'duets' in the suburbs of our biggest cities and if you're a light sleeper, like me, you might just wake to hear one in your garden this summer.  

So whether it's owls or Belle Miners, enjoy listening and thank you again for all your support. 

Best wishes,

Simon Mustoe

Powerful Owl

Calling all light sleepers

Are you a light sleeper?
