00_cover_2017_v1Share a unique view of Mt Gravatt Conservation Reserve with family and friends and support our ongoing restoration work and wildlife research.

The 2016 Photography Workshop was called Mount Gravatt lights up, so  workshop leader, Alan Moore, has selected participants photos that show contre-jour techniques. Contre-jour techniques break the rules by shooting into the light. The photos chosen breathe new life into how we see the world around us in a new way.13_thumbnails_2017_v2

Maginon Wildlife Camera

Funds raised in past years have allowed for purchase of research equipment like the infrared wildlife camera used to monitor the Squirrel Glider Petaurus norfolcensis families living the nest boxes at Fox Gully Bushcare.

Aldi have bought back their excellent, and at $129 excellent value, Maginon wildlife cameras. If you want one be quick because they will sell out fast.

We have been using two of an older version of these cameras for a couple of years now with excellent results. This new one is of course better with higher resolution video and sound recording. Sound recording would be great at the moment when we are capturing video of the very shy Noisy Pitta living in Firefly Gully. Marshal can hear its call but our camera does not handle sound.

The only issue we have found with these cameras is the intensity of the infrared leds used for video. I have fixed this with masking tape covering two thirds of the leds to reduce the intensity and make the camera less noticeable to our Squirrel Gliders.

The new Aldi Maginon wildlife camera is helping us learn more about wildlife in Mt Gravatt Conservation Reserve. Currently the camera is monitoring a Brush-turkey Alectura lathami  building a nest mound.

The infrared camera is also monitoring nighttime activity like this Common Brushtail Possum Trichosurus vulpecula on patrol on two different nights.

Monitoring the movement and behaviour of our wildlife will help us learn how to protect and restore the habitat.
