Southern Brown Bandicoots

My story for Sunday night ABC 7pm news.

We went to film the bandicoots at the Cranbourne Botanic Gardens but couldn’t find one of the little blighters, despite Terry assuring us they are usually common.

So we returned on another day. Sean the camera man said: I’ll set up the cameras and if we  just sit here quietly maybe they’ll come out.

Sean suggested sitting quietly would go well with a coffee and so I offered to get the coffee. And then I got lost on the way to the cafe. By the time I came back with his latte, Sean excitedly showed me 13 minutes of bandicoot footage he had captured while I was gone.
