FINALLY my elusive echidna finally appeared after five years. i was outside turning off the hoses in the dark and huge a scuttling and very noisy crackling of leaves.  not a kangaroo, to big for a bird on the ground, could it be the goanna? at night?
then i saw a dark little shadow and there he was, waddling through the garden. i raced for the camera and my phone torch and followed from a distance then stood and waited.  he came across the lawn right past my feet and off down the riverbank.  i couldn't see where he ended up but i'm sure he has a burrow down there.  no good pics though  -  couldn't even get the snout in but it's great to see him.
