Hairy and hairier

The Safari was out this arvo with a great class load of children investigating the habitats very close to their school. Fortunately we missed the rain although it was a bit muddier than some children seem to have experienced before. Nature Deficiency Disorder is deffo a real phenomenon,
No dicifiency this afternoon as everyone found something from giant Frogs to much smaller one and two year olds.
October isn't the best time for bug hunting but most pf the kids filled their pots with unusual goodies. 
The most interesting were this Drinker moth caterpillar.

This one is a bit trickier - any ideas anyone?

Nothing other than Common Scoters over the sea this morning.
Where to next? More habitat investigations later in the week, tomorrow will be restricted to Patch 2.
In the meantime let us know if you're suffering NDD in your outback
