And now for the deadly part.

When I had chooks a few years ago, it was devastating to find dead birds after a Spotted-tailed Quoll paid a nocturnal visit. Notoriously hard to catch, I set the trap with a dead chook previously killed and I managed to trap it. I released the Quoll in the Gibraltar Range National Park in the morning. Once I opened the cage it was gone in milliseconds before I could get a photo of the Quoll not in the trap.

Open and feeling good

Starting to feel its age

Closing to protect the seeds and changing colour

It is finally over
