    Yes I have been travelling a lot around SE NSW with work this year and mountain biking new trails every week is keeping me sane!

    Have you done Tathra? If you get that far south, it still rates as one of my all time favourites.

    my worry is that eventually they may hitch a ride then adapt e.g as they appear to have in Taren Point .

    Taren Point is not so much "adaption" (in the biological sense) as micro climate and opportunism....that's not to say they may not adapt over time if not eradicated.

    Sure you don't want a few picnic table jumps for those mt.bike trails....could be like a rail park .May necessitate a heavy duty red gum model... :whistle:

    May well I been one of mine. Nabbed one hitch hiker from the olds place near Lismore on the driveway in East Jindi earlier this year, made the trip ok but didn't survive the wheelie bin sauna.
    Good to see the crows and currawongs up that way have adapted to the cane toads somewhat - they flip last nights roadkill on their backs and take out their stomach and contents thru the mouth.

    I find this part really interesting given the drama of recent proposals to study Phasmids on BP. I guess the AM has a little more clout than a couple of dirtbaggers with the same interest and potential qualifications.

    Finally, at the tail end of this period (weather dependent), the AM will conduct a daring survey of the sheer cliff faces of Balls Pyramid, in search of further specimens of the rare LHI Phasmid. As Balls is almost entirely inaccessible and rarely climbed, it will require the expertise of specialist climbers to conduct this survey.
