Walking (fieldwork) 3:00:00 
Wainui Rec Area: Round 2 of the comparative rat tracking trial. After working into the night setting up Round 1 (up the Whakanui Track, etc) we'd decided it would be more sensible to get all the tunnels in place first before starting the trial. It didn't help though that in the mean time half the tunnels needed had vanished from the ZIP shed (which nobody has owned up to knowing anything about). So today was all about getting half the tunnels installed instead (and a little bit of exploring to try to get maximum line length without too many annoying side branches). Despite my best intentions, Lyndsay seemed to end up doing most of the packhorse work, but she didn't mind and this was the only day I had her so I suppose it was good to get full benefit of a helper!
