    Native= self introduced, can be found elsewhere
    Endemic= evolved here/not found anywhere else
    Introduced= someone brought it here

    My understanding was that the hawks self introduced hundreds of years ago, like the pukeko.
    Spur wings self introduced recently and so have native status. They had native protection for a few years until people realised they were annoying and removed it.

    @Dundee, it's called compassion and you've obviously got your soft spot. Nice touch.

    Cold but awesome night on the hill last night, rain held off which was good.

    4 possums down so a bit more fluff for the bag !!

    Also managed a few ground dwellers too, there was heaps about but there is also alot of cover up there so only a few bounces and they are safe until next time.

    The MAXTOCH Sniper M24 1350lm Dedomed Torch straight from Ali express is primo with the red possum eye standing out like the ball of a dog !!

    Loving it - a great time had buy all young and old !!
