SPOTLIGHTING (PART 2)
2 Greater Gliders, a Yellow-throated Scrubwren's nest and a shooting star were the highlights of 2 hrs out with Marty on the tracks to Glow Worm Glen and Dimmocks Creek car park. I was thrilled to see the Greater Gliders (dark chocolate brown and cream-toned specimens) and their distinct white eye shine. They were still, high up in eucalypts. I last saw these stunning mammals in September 2012, in Mongo National Park near Braidwood. That Mongo night I had 7 of them! Last night's Greater Gliders were the first I've recorded for the Southern Highlands. They may be moderately common in the right habitat. LJ, 11 June 2013.
