Wildlife Up Close

Yesterday was one of those days that seemed to revolve around wildlife encounters. While making the chooks breakfast I noticed a koala wandering towards the oak tree than up, on closer inspection there where two up there but after a short while only one remained for the day. Not surprising as they seem to be in every second tree at present and the sound of their grunts continually punctuates the evening.

As dusk fell Quentin noticed a couple of kangaroos come down to the creek, we had also watched them a couple of evenings before while having dinner, these were happily grazing on the grass along the creek.

For after dinner entertainment a ringtail possum jumped from the cable into the mulberry tree and the back onto the cable and off into the night.
