Tree-cam! So that’s how it’s done.

David & remote camera in a very large, old Yellow Box

Over the last half-year Dave has been developing some serious covert surveillance expertise! He’s often sighted either behind trees, or up in them. In this case it’s a very large, spreading Yellow Box (Eucalyptus melliodora).

Getting the remote-images that provide so much of the enjoyment and value of this blog has become more than a pastime for Dave and has required considerable ingenuity. You can see more pictures about how the cameras are set-up and the various other survey techniques used in this project HERE.

This Yellow Box tree is part of grassy woodland habitat along the Strath Ck-Flowerdale Rd. Here Dave has secured the camera to one of the tree’s several large limbs, taking care to get it just right.

This is the location where the camera caught a Brush-tailed Phascogale in action.
