I'll sleep in the back of my car. We can go to Ditchfield and then we can have a warm shower at the house lol.
If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

I take lots for the team. I recall you tried to marry me off to DD!

I was talking to a winery owner today who spent 20 odd years as the Grampians Forestry Ranger so I asked him if he has ever seen the Puma which he had.
Interestingly enough, he did his research many years ago and learned that a homestead in the district went bankrupt in the late 1800's. These people had quite an extensive 'personal' zoo and reportedly had several big cat species. When the farm closed, they simply opened the gate and let out all the animals into the bush.
I thought it might be worth a mention.

Do you know the name or location of this Homestead?

Longeranong Homestead. It's currently for sale, if you look on realestate.com and search Horsham for the $1m mark, you'll find it. The owners are quite private people. It's a MAGNIFICENT homestead, in it's day it was on 200,000 hectares (marginally larger than Grampians National Park)
Look it up and let me know what you think

I know of that place. I have been to Ercildoune.  Both amazing houses.
