Who has been wandering around your house?

Footprints in the Frost

More Footprints
I live on four acres and was able to get this picture, of some of the footprints on my lawn, early one morning recently when there was some frost.  Lots of traffic around my place at night!

Some  are from the bandicoot who wanders at night looking for insects etc. I have not been able to take his picture so have borrowed an image shown below from the Queensland Museum site.

Others are from the variety of birds that come to visit each day.

Ibis, duck, Sulphur crested cockatoo, crested pigeon and Rainbow Lorikeets

I have a wide variety of birds that visit for the birdseed.

My German Shepherd, Shannon, wasn't responsible for any of these footprints as she stays in with me at night but she definitely hears some of the visitors!

So who has been wandering your yard at night?
