Species List – Fauna

Here is our current (August 2016) Fauna Species List. Luckily Pete is excellent at wildlife identification. So I (that’s Margie) can just point and go ‘ooh’, and he knows what I am pointing at. Have a look at the page ‘Spottings’ under tab ‘Land for Wildlife’ for the stories of our finding some of the animals.
