The team participated in the annual Challenge Bird Count along the rail trail at Limestone. This year we observed 32 species. Highlights included Restless Flycatchers, Rufous Songlark and the Dusky Woodswallow.

The team have also been monitoring nest boxes. Sugar Gliders were found to be using many of the boxes that the Green Army and Kinglake Scouts had installed along the rail trail.
