Where's wallaby? Drone sweeps Long Bay Regional Park in search of pest

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Skippy, where the bloody hell are ya?

Not at Long Bay Regional Park, apparently.

A suspected wallaby has kept Auckland Council busy since a park volunteer claimed to have spotted it in April.

But trail cameras and a wallaby detector dog have been unsuccessful in detecting the wallaby, while scat samples collected for analysis ended up belonging to a possum.

As night fell on Wednesday, a team of forest survey specialists took to the sky with a thermal and night vision drone, in a final attempt to prove or rule out the wallaby’s existence entirely.

Electric carving knife - Sunbeam - Free

Karen from Totara Vale

I bought this electric carving knife but for some reason I can't get the blades to attach and work properly, I did succeed once and it worked well.
So, I bought another one and I have no trouble with it at all. I like Sunbeam products and this is the first time I've had any kind of bother.
Maybe someone out there can figure out what it's quirk is and make use of it properly. I hate throwing still useful things out! 027 203 2533.
