Here you will find a short video sequence following some frantic digging operations by our local population of wombats.   I think our bore is in serious danger of being undermined.
The first of these holes appeared over a period of only two days and the excavation work over the following week.
You have to admire the tenacity and dogged determination of these animals.   It’s no wonder that farmers get peed off with them!

Here you can find pictures of some of the warren systems on our property.  These are the homes of wild populations of wombats.    These burrows systems, together with their tracks from one to the other, can be seen quite plainly using satellite imagery.
