‘It isn’t easy being green’
An inquiry about frogs in the Hunter Wetlands over three years ago led to artist, (and now Wetlands volunteer) Mark Kempton to create a series of derivative paintings inspired by the frogs that inhabit the Hunter Wetlands Centre.
He brings life to the humourous and idiosyncratic qualities of these enthralling amphibians.

MAGPIE GEESE FEEDING
Daily at 10.30am the Magpie Geese are fed on the artificial grass mat on the edge of BHP Pond near the dip-net jetty.
Come along and watch (and listen to) the free for all at feeding time.
Other pond birds like the Pacific Black Duck, Eurasian Coots and Purple Swamp Hens join in too.
The number of birds being fed varies with the seasons.
They are fed a mixture of grains – Sorghum, layer pellets and wheat.
They are never fed bread as it is like junk food to birds.
