Anthony has sent in a great picture, I’ll let his words describe it:

Australian Owlet-nightjar.

The photo was taken in the woodlands just beside the car park at the Campbell Park offices.

Despite being nocturnal, they sometimes pop out of their hollows to catch a few rays on a cold day. This one has its eyes just open.

It’s like a furby, only I don’t get the urge to drop kick it’s flaming carcass into the lake.

reminds me of a Greens MLA – cute, furry, likes to hang out in a hollow log.
