Joondalup Times - - OPINION -

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.
