Afternoon Shadows

I'd been reading Anne's post about her lovely garden and visiting kookaburra.  I just ducked outside for a moment to collect some mandarins and spotted these visitors in the late afternoon shadows.
Can you see them?
a bit closer
Regular as clockwork about this time of day.  They are obviously aware that we are a Land for Wildlife property and have seen the sign at our front gate~

However, not so pleased to see this guy one night during the week - and not too far from our back door.  I think it could be the one we spotted recently on back verandah.... but what do I know, they all look similar!
He has obviously been out hunting since we saw him last judging by the big bump mid-section.
...... and yes I have counted that we still have all our hens!  I'm guessing it may be an unlucky small possum or bird.
cheers for now
