Bird-bath biodiversity

May 2, 2012

If you have been following previous posts on Ron and Kate’s bush block bird-bath at Flowerdale, you will know that they have recorded on a remote camera a wealth of visiting fauna. To add to the list of about 25 native birds, ringtail and brushtail possums, sugar gliders and a brush-tailed phascogale, not forgetting mice, rats and a frog, they now have a delightful new arrival – an antechinus, most probably an Agile Antechinus (Antechinus agilis). So the bath is clearly becoming a biodiversity hot-spot !
