Chasing feral cats

Picture of the taxidermy at Tidbinbilla.

Spent an hour setting up a single remote camera this morning at a location I have visited several times over the years. It is a small gully seldom visited at the end of a disused old forestry trail on a tributary of the Gibraltar Creek.

In the past I have collected images and video of the usual native fauna and the small gully flat seems to be a natural pathway from the Gibraltar Creek to higher ground. The area is cooler than the higher ground and feels a bit 'jurassic' in contrast to the surrounding dense bush.

Of particular interest to me are the population of feral cats in the area. The following photo is the image captured of a tabby feral cat at this location. I'd like to see how active they are there now.



I took some video of the setup..
