Gibraltar / Billy Billy Creek Remote Camera


I am becoming very interested in the feral animal population of our parks and reserves. I set two camera traps on a section of the Billy Billy Creek near its confluence with Gibraltar Creek in the Australian Capital Territory. On recent settings in the area I have captured, apart from the usual suspect macropods, lyrebirds, wombats, a ring tailed possum, and unfortunately two feral cats and, as of today two wild dogs.

As an aside I have been reading recently about the interaction between dingos and cats in the ecosystem and that having dingos in any given area means a reduction in feral cats. So far its 50/50.. Ill persue this further. I took some video..
