Camera results

December 7, 2011

An analysis of our remote camera survey results over the period January to November shows that wombats and kangaroos were by far the most frequently recorded native animals. From almost 100 camera deployments (each for a period of one week) on 25 properties, we recorded 11 native mammal species, 9 introduced mammals, 21 bird species and one reptile (a Common Blue-tongue).

Foxes, rats and rabbits were the most common pest species. The Red Fox was recorded on 17 of the 25 properties surveyed. With the night-time infra-red shots it was not always easy to readily identify the Black Rat from the native Bush Rat and the House Mouse from a native antechinus.

The birds captured on camera were mostly common species, but the highlights were a Superb Lyrebird and a Brown Goshawk , both on the same property – click on the name to see a previous post on each of thes birds.
