Life forms: birds
Sampling methods: no design, mist nets
Sample size: 1285
Years: 1982 - 1987, 1992 - 2000
Days: 549
Net or trap nights: 919
Sampling comments: "one 13 metre four shelf mist net (30 sq. m.)" was used from 1982 to 1991 and "three new sites were selected, all within 30 metres of the house, using nets of length either 9 metres (20 sq. m.) or 13 metres"
a detailed breakdown of the number of nets used per year and the number of days open is given
nets were also "operated sporadically" at Hilltop and Roadside from 1992 to 2000, but only counts of birds found only at those sites are given, so the counts entered are only for Goode Beach
