Tasmanian Wombat and a Dusky Woodswallow

I came across this wombat along the Bluff Hill Road near Arthur River.  The area is part of the Arthur Pieman Conservation Area. The Tasmanian wombat (Vombatus ursinus tasmaniensis) is a subspecies of the Common wombat. Wile mainland wombats can reach up to 1.2 m in length, the Tasmanian wombat averages 85cm.

This rather light coloured Dusky Woodswallow (Artamus cyanopterus) was seen in the Rocky Cape National Park at Sisters Beach. These are summer migrants in Tasmania. They often catch insects on the wing however, sometimes, as in this case, they will find a convenient perch and look for insects on the ground.
