After dark is a real danger. I travelled from Canberra Ave to Theodore early Sunday morning in the misty dark. There were easily a hundred Roos on the grass verges of the Highway.

Hi Geoffrey

Last Sunday we drove from from Canberra Avenue to Michelago. Having noted the seemingly unusually large number of dead roos on the way out, I counted dead roos (or parts thereof) on the way back. (I was a passenger.)

There were 85 dead roos. Several of the dead roos were surrounded by vehicle shards in what I took to be a sort of cause-effect arrangement.

I mention this so that anyone contemplating using that section of the road gives serious consideration to travelling during the daytime.

Native fauna, Rocky Knob Neighbourhood Park, Narrabundah.  For the first time in memory, kangaroos are feeding in this small park in the middle of suburbia.
