We have seen a few nocturnal visitors - a brushtail possum and kangaroos recently.

The possum (below in the composite picture) came down from the tree and scurried over to the fence; it climbed the dead tree and sat on the fence for a while, before going back down and scurrying off!

The grey night vision gave a very clear close up of a kangaroo

A little later the possum came down the tree and startled the kangaroo, which took off. 

The possum headed for Kim's feeder area, where it soon found the bird seed.

It ate for a long time, but was spooked for a while by something (another kangaroo) and it remained motionless for a long time

On the following days the possum was spotted climbing up the tree and perched way up on a branch:

The kangaroos have visited during daylight as well.  Here is one in the early hours, right by Kim's feeders:

There were three of them, approaching from close by:

The feeders were even checked out by one of them!

Kim has installed a new 'bar' and some birds are allowed to visit!  It was lovely capturing this visit by three King Parrots (composite screenshot below).
