Hi David,

another fantastic post. I always appreciate the photos of the smaller fauna. 
Well done on researching so many species IDs right across reptiles, inverts and 

If anyone is interested, I have 22 photos captured using a motion-activated 
trail camera from near Adamsfield in Tasmania's south-west (no birds), here: 
m("N02/sets/72157622694300236/","//");">http: - we were 
happy to get a single Tassie devil photo (in response to one of the comments 
after your photos) and the boxing wallabies right in front of the lens were 
magic :)

When I head back next week I'll see what I can do to get photos, particularly 
of birds so I can share them here and learn more about Tassie's birdlife. Sadly 
my long lens has seized. If anyone has something cheap and spare they can sell 
me for a Nikon D50 this week - I'm in Sydney - let me know.

PS - one highlight of a previous trip to Tas was hearing a ground parrot call 
as we walked past a small stand of shrubs :) and also seeing the white form of 
the grey goshawk sitting in a tree but I hit "record" on the video camera 
before it had fully warmed up, and when I hit the button again to stop 
recording after it flew off, realised I'd only then just started recording. Doh.

Hello all,

My wife and I are back from a quick trip to Tasmania.  We spent most of our 
time in the Hobart area but also headed up to Ben Lomond NP and then the Bay of 
Fires region on the east coast.  I did not see any odd birds but was happy to 
find Swift Parrots at Mt. Knocklofty in Hobart and then up at the start of the 
Pinnacles Track on Mt. Wellington.

I prepared a post of habitat, flowers and reptiles that may interest some of
