Update 18th April 2022 - An anniversary and some sad news

This blog has now been up for ten years, but the anniversary sort of snuck up on me and I haven't prepared any sort of special post to mark the event. And also there has been some very sad news which has put a damper on things: Darcel was found dead. He was found next to a power pole and appears to have been electrocuted.

Update 25th December 2021 - Baby Possum Alert

For a few days now, Sasha's latest baby (her 14th) has been venturing out of her pouch when in the nestbox. So now is the time for a Baby Possum Alert.

Sasha can normally be seen in box 3 or 5. Unfortunately, the camera in box 3 isn't very good at the moment.

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.
