This is a follow up event to last Monday nestbox monitoring!

Last monday we checked nestboxes and found gliding possums. In the process a couple of boxes were identified that need replacement. This event is timed to hopefully give those who are walking with Don Ingram at Yackandadah an opportunity to drop in on the way home. I will be walking with Don - the plan is to meet in the park opposite 4 Jamison Drive Baranduda and put the two new nestboxes in place. All required equipment will be provided - we will need to erect two ladders, support them safely to reduce risk

If time allows we will use a poletop camera and hand held monitor to inspect nest boxes we didnt get to last Monday. 

This is a dog friendly activity - with the proviso that we are entering an environment favored by reptiles at this time of the year!

If we are lucky we might get to see something like this!
