Natives 80 Ferals 1080

December 31, 2011

One of our remote cameras has been in action on a bush block just to the east of Flowerdale. Over a 3-week period, the camera recorded well over 1000 pictures, including some of a Common Wombat, Australian Magpie, a Grey Currawong and a Laughing Kookaburra – as well as many images of European Rabbits and a Fallow Deer (see slideshow below).

However, the great majority of pictures were of a Red Fox family, including 3 well-grown cubs. The camera seems to have been fortuitously located right at the site of the family’s regular gatherings. While they may be helping to keep the rabbit numbers down, they would undoubtedly be a great threat to native wildlife on the property (but probably not to the wombat which they took little notice of as it passed by at night).
