Update 25th November 2021 - In Memory of Marcel
First some very sad news; Marcel was hit by a car on the road. He was found in the morning, badly injured, and had to be euthanized by the vet. He has been buried in the garden next to Rahmet.

Update 22nd July 2021 - Record Number of Box Possums
On a couple of occasions recently, four possum boxes have been occupied simultaneously. Not only that, but all of the possums are females with pouch babies, so there were actually a total of eight possums in the boxes. This would have to be a record.

Despite its small size and the relatively cold temperatures, Sasha's latest baby (her 13th) is now venturing out of her pouch when in the nestbox. So now is the time for a Baby Possum Alert.

It has been longer than usual since my previous update, but at least no dramatic events have happened in the interim. All of the possums are still visiting and healthy.
Walt has become a regular visitor.

Update 6th Mar 2021
All of the brushtails are visiting and in good health. I know I say that a lot and it's probably getting tedious, but possums live dangerous lives and I'm glad every night that they turn up happy and healthy.
