Yep, we all got the chance to meet Silver Bum………
Not our guide, but he did bring along a great taxidermy specimen of a male Koala (not to mention the echidna, powerful owl, sugar glider, barn owl and a blue tongue lizard)
What a great night. The stars where out in force and no moon to be seen. With very little wind any creature movement was easily detectable. Even more so with Matt’s bat detector…….. 23 people joined us for our first Holiday Activity. Thank you all for taking the time to explore our local reserve by spotlight.
It was a late night for the 8 children who where amazed by Pete ‘the Possum Mans’ stories and tricks to attract our nocturnal critters. For the first time in many years we spotted a real koala in the reserve. We also spotted a big brushtail possum going about his evening business.
Conversations on the night have led to planning the next holiday activity: likely to involve building nesting boxes for more critters to call Barongarook home. We will update via our quarterly newsletter so make sure you subscribe and keep in the possum loop…….
