A Swamp Wallaby in the Garden

Winter in 2015 was quite dry, and the Swamp Wallaby was often seen near the house – which is when I took this photograph.  It’s actually eating the native plants in the garden, after drinking from the water feature.

Thankfully, this Winter has been much wetter, with lots of food for wallabies in the bush. We haven’t seen any wallabies up close this Winter.  While I miss seeing them happily munching away just outside the window, I must admit I am thankful they don’t need to eat the garden this year.  I guess they will return in Summer when there is less to eat in the bush.
