User's notes

This (immature?) wombat knocked over a few things as it entered my 'lower' Hackett backyard in 2014. Photographed behind the vege patch. It seemed to be exploring, rather than looking for food. It left quietly and has never returned. I thought it may add to the history of wombat sightings in the Ainslie-Majura area.
