Mount Buffalo Day 1

9 February 2013

Stalked around Mt Buffalo, mainly looking for dragonflies. Shower in the morning and another in the afternoon but warmish most of the time. Returning back to the car after dark I encountered several frogs beside the track. They rustled somehwat like you would expect skinks to do during the day so I could find them relatively easily thereafter. I believe they were all Limnodynastes dumerili (Eastern Banjo Frog or Pobblebonk). These were up to a kilometre from water in fairly dry country but the afternoon shower gave them enough impetus to go walkabout.
