There is quite a lot of activity in our NZ forest world at night-time. Our Demon Dragons - the New Zealand Wetas - are likely to be out looking for a feed as will be the Morepork (the New Zealand Owl) and the Kiwi - both nocturnal birds. Snails and insects, maybe bats and mice go about their business of searching for food, also.
Unfortunately, probably the most
noise of all will be made by the Opossum,
introduced from Australia, which will
be out munching into leaves and fruits..
Recently a new control initiative has started up here
in the North, training school leavers in possum hunting
for the fur industry - looking good. If this became
a NZ-wide program, we could look forward to
possum control that doesn't put our native birds at risk.
