I have been back in Australia for a few weeks now and have been trying to write my Churchill Report whilst distilling the information into the Camera Trappig Manual/Protocol that I am writing for the Invasive Animal CRC. I have also had the opportunity to speak with some of the people who I could not speak with while in the USA. The ideas have come think and fast since returning home and I am trying to keep the ball rolling on some collaborations and papers I want to write and research we need to do.
When I was in Monument Valley in Utah I stayed in a Hogan Bed and Breakfast next to the Navajo Community and set one of my camera traps outside on some chicken to see what was around. Interestingly I recorded some great footage of a grey fox and the owners cat preying on native desert rodents. The owner of the B&B has posted the images on his site, check it out http://www.firetreeinn.com/slideshow/foxmeekintro.htm or www.firetreeinn.com/slideshow/camera_trap
