The GFNC Fauna Group mammal trapping survey near Forrest commences on Thursday 13 with Elliot traps set-up, through to Sunday 16 April. We may set Harp traps for bats if the weather is
suitable.

Thursday 13 April
Meet: 1.00 p.m. at the corner of Boundary Road and Forrest Birregurra Road to assist setting up the Elliot traps.

Friday 14–Sunday 16 April
Meet: 7.20 a.m. sharp 

All GFNC members are invited to attend the trap checking that will occur early in the morning of each day from Friday to Sunday. Note that as we will have reverted to Standard Time the sun will rise by 6.50 a.m. This means we will have an early start to each day but this is a great chance to observe animals that most people rarely get a chance to see, such as Agile Antechinus, Bush Rats or other small mammals. You may want to stay nearby the prior night

Location Forrest
