Baranduda Landcare has over 200 nestboxes installed on roadsides, Wodonga Retained Environment Network reserves and strategic corridors of remnant vegetation linking the Baranduda Range and the Middle Creek, Yackandandah Creek and Kiewa River.
Today we had the first nestbox check for 2012 - a total of 19 people attended! this was designed to showcase our new poletop camera equipment. We started by having a good look at the maps and photos of the nestbox deployment and previous observations. We then had a quick demo of the tree popper recently acquired by the Kiewa Catchment Landcare Group as well as the semi automated tree planting equipment. We then moved down to the Yackandandah road and spent some time inspecting the post burnoff recovery of the roadside vegetation before inspecting nestboxes and moving up the Jamison Drive gully checking nestboxes as we went.
