One benefit of being a lazy gardener

Agile wallaby (Macropus agilis)
I've been meaning to clear out my small garden for quite a while. It's overgrown with climbers, has lots of ferns underneath, and a couple of plants I have tried to kill keep springing back. It's quite closed in around the patio, with a small open area, and seems to be an attractive spot for the above wallaby. I'm fairly confident it's the same one I've seen two other times in the last week.

I suspect ongoing development near the entrance of Trinity Beach, which has cleared a large field that was home to a large wallaby population, has driven them into areas that they previously didn't occupy - including my garden. I also saw one that had been killed by a car on Moore Street recently, and worry that we'll see more suffer that fate.
