28/05/22 Twilight Walk: Yellingbo

Fourteen enthusiastic participants, under Karen's guidance, braved the early evening on a Twilight Walk. It was a still, mostly clear night, and a waning moon with just 5.6% illumination. We sighted 5 Common Brushtail Possums, 5 Ringtail Possums, 5 Sugar Gliders and Common Wombat scats on our approx 2km walk. Heard, but not seen, were the Common Eastern Froglet, Victorian Smooth Froglet and Southern Brown Tree Frog. Bird species heard were: 3 Masked Lapwing, 2 Common Blackbird, 4 Australian Wood Duck, 2 Purple Swamphen and 2 Superb Fairywren.
As we drove away at 8pm, the temperature gauge was showing 4 deg celsius. With our coldest months to come, it's pretty incredible to think our native animals are so well adapted to life outdoors, provided we as humans leave their critical habitat intact!
Thank you to Karen for sharing her knowledge and passion for animals with us tonight.
