It's been nice over the last few years to watch a family of Cunninghams Skinks on Mt Ainslie;  they live in a large log and sun themselves to advantage on days like this.  Photo attached.

Other reptile sightings today included two shinglebacks, and on Sunday we had an exciting close encounter with a good sized eastern brown snake.  A bearded dragon was spotted sunning itself on a branch a few weeks ago.  Pics are available for all these.  Meanwhile the remote cameras are now on watch for Rosenbergs Monitor activity; watch this space.
