More than 60 birds have been observed by a Munibung Hill Conservation Society member who has been visiting Munibung Hill for over 22 years. How many of these birds still reside or visit Munibung Hill we are unsure of. The small selection of images here are not all of actual sitings but are included for identification purposes should you come across them while visiting the area.
Southern Brown Bandicoot
Common Green Tree Snake Dendrelaphis punctulatus spotted on Munibung Hill 17.10.18 at 8.30am. This species has a yellow belly, is non-venomous and is common in eastern Australia. Image by Eric Vanderbuys, in What Snake is that? Hunter & Central Coast NSW
Non native invaders
Introduced animals be they domestic or wild are of great concern to the Munibung Hill Conservation Society. These are very distressing pictures.
Cats and foxes are both introduced species of the hunting variety that prey on native wildlife. It is extremely important to keep cats indoors at night. And the dumping of unwarranted pets in the bush is a crime against nature in our view.
