I continue with my scientific research with an Australian government department into endangered Marsupials. We use baited camera trap to try to locate target species. The target species at present is the Spotted-tailed Quolls. Unsuccessful with the quolls at present but I did manage to get over 15,000 images on 8 camera traps on the chosen mountain. Cold, dry, Winter days make for great hiking days (this time of year) to check cameras. Various interesting birds are attracted as well as several well known Aussie mammals, including a koala which is rare in the area and some that are rare and endangered. I got my first images today of a Brush-tail Phascogale which has an extraordinary tail images attached.
Here a couple of images of the animals and bird that visited my camera traps.

Thanks for the preview -- is that a native rat or the black rat? I'm guessing the possum is the brush-tail, but don;t know the wallaby, it must have some age on it with those notched ears.

Ok in order of appearance
Image 1, 2 & 3 BRUSH-TAILED PHASCOGALE (a very rare capture) it is a carnivorous marsupial, not a possum (which is definately not a meat eater)!
Image 4 is another carnivorous marsupial it is a ANTECHINUS not a rat.
Image 5 Red fox
Image 6 Koala (a camtrapping first for me, they are rarely seen and even rarer on the ground)
Image 7 Common bronze-winged pigeon.
Image 8 Swamp Wallaby and yes he is aged l purposely included this one because of the torn ears.
