"thanks for that.  How did you trigger the camera?  I want to take shots of crops and pasture and then post process the results.  Hence my preference for a Go Pro with its ability to take multiple timed shots. "

Good to have a yarn yesterday Patric. 

You would probably be interested in the work that Joe and Gisella Noci are doing in Namibia - do a search on 'nampilot'.  They are much further down the road than we are. Competent operators! They use UHF tags on their critters.

I've also found a fella based in Sydney who has published on use of UAV for automated searching for VHF tagged wildlife. Is a heavy duty paper that is more about the robotics and coding rather than use of the tool. He's still on leave at the moment so I will catch in a week or so and hopefully get some plain english discussion going.
