More possums and gliders

Ringtail Possum drey - Photo: David Laurie

Those who attended the Focus on Fauna talk last month on Possums and Gliders would readily identify the bundle of sticks in this photo as a ringtail possum’s nest, or drey as it is known. The possum’s face can be seen poking out from the entrance, looking a little sleepy!
Although our regular survey schedule has now finished, the remote cameras have not been completely idle, and recently managed to capture many pictures of Sugar Gliders and both a Common Ringtail and a Common Brushtail Possum on a property over towards Reedy Creek.

The short video below may take a few moments to load.

    Great photo of the nest and occupant – in it’s natural habitat! Cannot see the sugar glider photo – I must be missing something – the keen eye? Hope the program continues. It would be interesting to know what hasn’t returned? – Keep up the great work – Susan and Joel
