Echidna in the veggie patch

An Echidna came to visit our veggie garden yesterday. He (or she) took great delight in rooting around the tomatoes and chillies in a search for ants. They are interesting creatures and it's great that they are still around.

We adopted the echidna years ago as the symbol for Friends of Bass Valley Bush because it was easily recognisable but was something that wasn't likely to be around for too much longer as most of the native vegetation in the region was in the process of being cleared.
The clearing is still going on in the name of  'progress' but at least there is still enough around for this little critter to survive a bit longer.
Details about Friends of Bass Valley Bush and its activities can be found at
