Nest Box monitoring 2022

Thanks to the Landcare crew that came out today for the annual nest box monitoring. We had two teams complete approximately 80 boxes in 2 hours using the pole cameras. Thanks to (L to R in photo) Beth, Michael, Pam, Brona, Bronwyn, Dave, Miles, Louie, Nev (and Ned running about somewhere).

We recorded 24 sugar gliders, one Brush-tailed Possum, 10 or so bats, three boxes had bees, and there were fresh nests for four Brush-tailed Phascogales. Miles got chased by bees, and afterwards found a Yellow-footed Antechinus eating a dead bird in one of the boxes!
