Species List as at 19th May 2011

Having a background in environmental studies and a general interest in habitat and wildlife I am always keen to keep some sort of track of the species we have on our property. Below is the current list, which is by no means comprehensive. I am only adding to it when I am fairly sure of the identification. Hopefully I will have more photo’s eventually too. I decided to only use my own photos seeing as it is my blog and it seems silly to use photos of creatures taken elsewhere. You will also notice that this list does not include plants or insects, mostly because I haven’t even begun on those at this stage 😉 If you are a wildlife observer and notice any of my photos are identified incorrectly please be sure to let me know.
