Proved to be a Good Idea

After seeing an interesting looking old tree, with some interesting looking hollows, which was leaning over on an angle, we thought it might worth trying something a bit different and pointing a remote camera at it. Not expecting much of a result, it was great to find that it is a busy spot for some of our small mammal species. Antechinus, Bush Rats, Brushtail and Ringtail Possums were all regular users. It was very exciting to also photograph some Sugar Glider activity, this is the first time we have managed to get a shot of one with our cameras.

  1. Wow! What a great outcome for an on-the-spot hunch. Hope we can see some more great footage – maybe something unexpected or new!?

  2. What a brilliant idea. I would love to do this around some of our trees. We have some trees that almost seem to have “tracks” up the bark, and I never get to see which species are in the tree. My guess is that they are similar to the species you have photographed. Well done!

    1. Yes, its certainly worth getting hold of a remote camera if you can. Also look out for opportunities to borrow one. Local Landcare groups often will have them available for loan.
