Landslide on our property

Looked out the bedroom window while getting dressed to empty the raingauge and noticed that our gully (that our backyard creek goes through) has suffered a landslide (on the far side of the gully).

Shot this from the veranda.

    Dave, I saw over 20 both major and minor in your area yesterday. Looking at the radar, red and yellow has been above you for most of the morning it seems. I hope there isn't a major land shift event in your area... although I dont think the successive rolling hills would allow for anything with too much momentum.
    If you have any major trees down in your yard causing you trouble let me know. My brother-in-law is a certified energex tree guy.

    [] At the moment, I think we're ok. Will be keeping an eye on things though.
    [] Yeah, pretty much solid rain so far this morning.
    Good to know about the trees, I've got a couple that might need to go.

    Photos are the only way to understand the magnitude of all of this at the moment.
