GUN001: Gungahlin Pond on 14 Nov 2019

4 confirmed species

Author's notes

This area of Gungahlin pond is located on the corner of Lexcen Ave and Gungahlin Dve, closest to Massie Place. There are more reeds and vegetation than the photo on the map. At around 2.5 mins can I hear a call like the 'corkscrew'? This are would be a good site to monitor. During October 2019 I monitored and recorded the area of GUN001 where the stormwater drain flows into the pond down near the white park on Ibis St (Nicholls). However when i went to review on Friday 14/11/19 all the vegetation near the footbridge (where the frogs were) has been removed and there are just stones there now and it is dry - very sad:( there were no frog calls heard. I have before and after photos.

So do I understand right that you monitored at a slightly different spot?? will check this out on the map. would you suggest a permanent move to this new site location??

corks screw frog is Uperoleia laevigata- can not hear this on your recording but a close and slow Crinia parinsignifera- which is easily misidentified as an Uperoleia
