We started out by looking for some nestboxes that had not been located with the GPS. The group leader knew roughly where they were, making the task a bit easier, and a couple of the youngsters with us had keen eyes so we found them without too much trouble. Then the fun began - we used a special camera to take a look inside the boxes! Here is a video from Wildlife Queensland that explains how the remote camera works:
Brush-tail Possum Trichosurus vulpecula in one of the possum boxes! There were several Microbat boxes too, although we couldn't see in them as the opening was too small. However, it was obvious that there were no Microbats in one of them, as a Lace Monitor Varanus varius had decided to have a snooze there instead - we could just see the tail and foot sticking out!
Squirrel Gliders Petaurus norfolcensis (Gliders sleep socially, so there were a few in the nest!). The Wildlife Queensland web link also had some audio on the noise they make! Then, in the very last box we surveyed, we came across some Sugar Gliders Petaurus breviceps and were able to see them clearly on the screen. Technology is amazing!
