We've had a good crop of lemons this year. I left the bucket on our deck overnight to keep it cool and a local possum stopped by to sample them. It doesn't look like it liked them much as it only bit into the skin of three of them.

These was possum poo at several spots across the swing bridge at the start of the Nina Valley track. The possums must be using the bridge to cross the river.

The first solid food that I have seen taken by this baby, the other one emerged tonight as well but her mum (this baby's big sister) is keeping it away from the house.

Just realised tonight that there is another mummy here as she came up during this session with a full pouch, I have two babies!

I saw the new baby through the opening in the pouch but it closed up before I got the camera.
