Four possums today! First time doing the whole trap line down by the river. Very tired now but it was good. Heard some bellbirds and saw one Kereru feeding on Kowhai Flowers. See normally the possums would eat all the flowers and there would be none for the birdies. But they need it more. And Christine came with me all the way. Two hours walk so not too bad. When my hip is all good again I should be able to do it in far less time. Total now 57 possums!
Also this week two more stoats!
2 more possums today. They must have been there a while because completely mangled and basically only fur and bones left. I guess there must be more of those around that we have never seen.
We have been checking the closest traps and have re loaded them with bait. So good to be out there again walking and trapping. The main trap line will have to wait for another few weeks before I can go down there. 15 more traps are on order!! So much to do!!
