GREENWOOD resident Gary Tate was observing a quenda, or southern brown bandicoot, searching for food on the side of the shared path east of Lake Goollelal last Wednesday. “A group of walkers appeared around the corner and were amazed to see what we were seeing,” he said. “The walking group are members of Hamersley U3A on one of their regular local walks. The quenda is down in a hole it has dug looking for insects, roots, worms, fungi or lizards. I have regularly observed quenda in this area and believe there may be three present.” Mr Tate returned to the spot a day later and captured another shot of a quenda, which he called Stumpy, hopping across the path.
