Everyone who reads this blog will know that I have a drone, I intend to fly this machine over rivers and creek in my area, this will be an invaluable asset in detection of good and bad habitat in areas where it is difficult to walk.
I believe technologies like this can help us protect and monitor these places better than we ever have before, there will be more tech to come in the future, better water testing and monitoring systems.
below are a selection of waterways that have fallen victim to this contraption.
The drone itself is only the base model but has a good camera.
The new dam will have water in the spring, I will put Blackfish in next year, probably fish I bred last year they will a good size by then.
Mumblin hidden wonder.
What can you say about beautiful Bullen Merri I have been spending time there all my life and I still find it stunning, great fishing, great scenery, the facilities are pretty good and the grounds are terrific a great picnic spot.
Skinners creek below is in the Otway forest in southwest Victoria. the creek used to hold large amounts of Blackfish but they have disappeared we don’t know why, one thing that stood out when filming this clip was the lack of copepods and other insect larvae, if we don’t have food for young fish we won’t have young fish.
