Local wildlife enthusiasts Trent and Steve ventured into Coonans Bridge Reserve, Flowerdale the other evening to check out the resident wildlife. After catching a glimpse of a Platypus in King Parrot Creek, they proceeded to record an impressive list which included a Tawny Frogmouth, a Southern Boobook with chicks, a Sacred Kingfisher, a young Black Wallaby, six Common Brushtail Possums and a Sugar Glider.

Trent also took along his thermal imaging camera, which was able to detect feral bees in a tree hollow, a Common Brushtail Possum, also in a tree hollow, and the unidentified occupant of one of the many nest boxes installed in the Reserve.

    Great photos Trent.
    I will take the nest box inspection camera down there and inspect the nest boxes with I installed at the reserve with the volunteers and any extra ones put up by FEWE.
