Over the Christmas break my son and I went to Bremer Bay camping for 4 nights. We had a great time and I hoped to get out spotlighting but only managed to take a whole lot of young kids out – but we had a lot of fun doing it and found mainly spiders. No possums as hoped – though my son said he saw plenty 🙂 and it started raining at the end of our walk.
We did about 1000kms over the week and I saw lots of roadkill. As a matter of interest I did a rough tally of what I saw:
- Foxes 6+
- Roos 4-5
- Snakes – this Dugite was seen in Bremer Bay
- bobtails – I managed to shoo a live one off the road hopefully to live another day
- various birds
Wildlife takes a beating on the roads…
