Four RRP on Callum Brae this morning in big tree near main gate.


Also, I was thrilled this morning to meet up again with my old buddy the "tame" kangaroo.  I didn't see her last year and thought she must have had an encounter with the culling team.  But there she was, with one in the pouch and one at foot, bringing the kids along to look at the strange apparition known as "Ancient photographer pushing wheelchair"!  She leaves the mob and circles around me at a distance of less than 15 metres.  The last time I met up with her a couple of years ago she hopped along beside me only about 8 metres away while I pushed my gear through the bush.  This morning she just stood among the bushes and watched me photographing things until I turned my camera on her, then she withdrew, but only a few metres.
