The possum is gone. We didn't catch her, we just watched which opening she was using and after she went out for her usual nightly stroll around the garden, M fastened up all the holes.
Apparently there was a bit of a ruckus (can't spell) upon her return but I didn't hear it and for now we are possum free. Terry seems a bit disappointed but he's not meant to be running about anyway!
The little bandicoot though, seems to really like the possum trap and we have to keep freeing him - he's not learning fast.
The really big news though is that on Monday 1st February, Eddie delivered her first white egg. Unfortunately it did not have a shell so Terry was given a treat. But on Wednesday and Friday last week, she delivered yet again. Not in the nesting box of course, but she pulled her own little nest of straw around and I know where to look each day now. Those eggs and the one that came this morning are all perfect. She's obviously a union gal and doesn't work on weekends!
She must have forgotten that today was a public holiday in Tasmania!
Patsy, the other leghorn is taking her time but I don't think she's far off now. Perhaps she'll be a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday kind of girl.......
