Colour and Science

A touch of garden colour:
It is exciting to see the garden get going as spring warms up.

While out walking today we came across two echidnas!

The first was busily digging for ants under trees, although it hid when we got close:

The second was crossing the road a couple of hundred metres ahead of us, so getting a photo involved a bit of running to catch up with it. By the time we got close it had dug itself into the ground:
When I posted a previous echidna sighting earlier this month, a reader sent me details of a citizen science project she thought I might be interested in, Echidna CSI. I was interested! So I registered my earlier sighting on the project's website straight away. Today these two were were registered using the Echinda CSI app.

  1. Fantastic sightings. I suspect you will be adding a lot of information to the project. How territorial are echidna?
