Tonight was our second Junior Nature Club adventure.. Yay! We had a fantastic walk through remnant bushland along the Yarra River at Westerfolds Park in Templestowe. We spotted a beautiful Tawny Frogmouth - where the kids learnt that while they look like an owl and kind of act like an owl and are nocturnal - they actually are not an owl...! They are part of the nightjar family which are actually more closely related to kookaburras!
We thought all the possums had a bit of a sleep in today/tonight as it wasn't until the end of our spotlighting adventure that we spotted about 15 Brushtail Possums - definitely ended the night with a bang! Such beautiful creatures!
While we spotted some wombat and kangaroo scats (poo) they weren't to be seen tonight... Hopefully next time :-)
