Hi Christina. It is hard to see evidence of a Common Brushtail Possum from the photo. Can you describe what you saw?

Hi Michael - for mysterious reasons the photo has uploaded upside down! The possum is asleep in the crook of the tree in the centre of the photo. One can see the brown-grey fur of the body and black tail wrapped around. Apologies for the poor quality picture!
