    Thredbo and Perisher snow cams show a dusting, above 1500m, perhaps 2-3cm depth on Basin Cam.

    Observed this near Betts Creek this morning.... It was headed towards the Southern End of Mt P in the snow fall till it saw the car and took off in the direction that it came. Gives a different view of the overnight snow.

    Increasingly seeing deer in and around the higher elevations this past year. Noted one strolling mid morning across Smiggin Holes a few weeks back.

    Today’s snowfall did not seem to be bothering it?

    I was in the area around Paddy Rushs Bogong, Brindle Bull and Drift Hill, and also the Charcoal Range around 5 times this summer and saw a minimum of two deer per trip. They aren't even bothered by humans which is troubling...

    Off topic - that should make them much easier to shoot then :)
    It was nice to feel the chill in the air leaving the office at lunch time.

    I noticed this last December up at Perisher as well. I haven't seen them before this year. Hard-hooved, suited to the area - not good. Will dwarf the brumby problem, if it doesn't already, within a few years.
