Tonight some of us went for a "night stalk" organised by the local Landcare Officer. We walked in the Capercup nature reserve, and didn't see any wildlife larger than a bat. The noise of our group wouldn't have helped, and with the little LED torch I had a wild animal would have had to come up and tap me on the shoulder before I saw it. There were lots of mosquitoes though, so we made sure we put on insect repellent before venturing out.
I had fun playing with my camera in the dark. At the end I put the camera on the roof of a car for a 30 second exposure and it almost looked like daylight because of the full(ish) moon.
