In November 2011, I was lucky enough to spend some time at Lake Eacham on the Atherton Tablelands. My main task was tracking down little brown skinks, but I managed to track down some other critters along the way. One of them, the northern dwarf crowned snake (Cacophis churchilli), was a reptick for me and completed my set of Cacophis. Another one, the yellow-breasted boatbill (Machaerirhynchus flaviventer), was an avitick for me and I really regret not being able to get pics of them. They’re gorgeous little birds, full of personality. Probably the highlight, though, was getting to photograph a striped possum. I’d managed a dodgy look at this species several years ago, but this time I was able to spend a decent amount of time watching and photographing one. They’re much bigger than I remember.
My running total: 359 repticks
