Mammals

When we first moved here, in 1991, we saw kangaroos and wallabies in the bush around us, on the road and in our property. As the area has become more built up, we no longer see them on our property and rarely see them in the surrounding area. One good sign of progress however is the bush area over the road has been designated a Regional Park and is now fenced off providing a safe haven for them now.

We don’t see many other mammals, possibly because there are the occasional foxes that visit unfortunately. We have seen possums and quendas (Southern Brown Bandicoot) however.

Another visit from Gwenda the Quenda!

Even eating the poultry food!

We have regular visits from possums (or more likely, one possum).

Hang in there!

Grip well? Sure will!

Our tub of hessian bags provided a cosy bed for the possum in the daytime!
