MAMMALS VARIOUS & SOME BOOBOOKS
A spontaneous drive out to Echo Point (Morton) last night, with my good mate Andre de Borde (curator, artist, owner of Gallery Ecosse and Bundy local), unearthed a range of mammals with the help of his 4WD's high beams: Red-necked Wallaby (terrific to find this species again; I saw one fleetingly back in 2009), Common Wombat, Eastern Grey Kangaroo, Common Brushtail Possum and Black (Swamp) Wallaby (there were four of these). Some sort of microbat was clicking in the gloom off Echo Point. Boobook Owls were very vocal at Echo Point and near Gambells Rest. LJ, October 22 2013.
