Tunnels are one of the monitoring measures used at the lake.
Creatures will be lured by the smell of the bait, walk into the tunnel... walk across the ink pad... have a nibble.... then walk out the other end... leaving their prints behind.

I'm really hoping that I will stumble across some lizard prints!!!
Below are some photos of the team in action.

|Many thanks to Ray for bringing his boat to rapidly deploy us into the field! about 2 minutes to get from one side of the lake to the other instead of a half hour walk. Lots of work time saved! |

|While out with Litchie this week he also pointed these out to me .... |
read on to find out what they are, next photo might give you a clue
|Each card has a lot of information written on it- this is really important when we look at the cards after they have been collected. If there are prints we want to investigate we know exactly where the card came from.|
