Possum Magic

Andrew & Maree King - Wednesday, February 16, 2011
Our resident shearing shed possum was very cooperative the other day and posed for some photos.  This little possum has been living in the shearing shed for the past few months.  We haven't seen possums on our properties for a very long time.  Her pouch looked quite dirty so I am hoping that there is a young one close by that has just left the pouch.


The wild life, both native and feral, has exploded in the wet season.  Little brown frogs and green tree frogs are in plague proportions.  They are lovely to see outside, however I am over removing them from the toilets and showers!  I am in charge of de-frogging, can you believe that my big strong husband hates the feeling of frogs and refuses to touch them.  We are also on the look out as we have seen two dead rats on our driveway (13 km long) in the past week.  I have never seen a rat here (20 years) Andrew's father has experienced 2 rat plagues out here in his lifetime and both were after good seasons.  I am definitely not the rat catcher, hopfully puss will keep them at bay.
