Pilot site visits in Lamington National Park!

Sometimes on fieldwork you just have to visit stunningly beautiful places... (and sometimes the road is so eroded that your car won't make it down the track!).

On the way to the field site near Luke's farm

Yesterday, Thais and Laura from our team, and QPWS Senior Conservation Officer Harry Hines (and a few others) ventured to the highlands of the Lamington NP plateau to investigate some potential field sites for Thais' PhD occupancy survey frog disease research.

Stockyard creek

We found some stunning creeks, and spent some time looking for tadpoles and egg clutches...

Looking for Fleay's barred frog egg clutches along Cainbable creek

We found lots of tadpoles from many different species...

Tree frog tadpoles in a pond formed from a small eroded hole in the creek bedrock

We even accidentally snapped a selfie while trying to photograph the tadpoles (I'm calling this a 'tadpole's-eye-view')! :)

A highlight of the trip was a visit to look for tadpoles at the edge of Dingbing falls...

And the magnificent view over the infinity pool... :)
