Where I was this morning....

Just a kilometre or two from where we live, along the Serpentine River. Husband went fishing. I went for a walk.
 Met an Australian marsupial  

The quenda (Isoodon obesulus fusciventer) is a subspecies of southern brown bandicoot that is only found in southwest Western Australia. Remarkably, quendas can still be found in remnant bushland across suburban Perth. See more here.

Heh heh - I just mentioned your bird-watching skill on my blog and here you are, not only twitching but quenda-ing, too. I'm ashamed to admit that I have not heard of this little creature before, let alone seen one! I hope Noramly was successful in his fishing enterprise as well!

Well, our generation knew them as Bandicoots, I guess.

Ramly caught a Black Brim!
