Be kind to the region’s wildlife
IT’S been the usual Christmas/New Year holiday chaos with injured and orphaned wildlife.
Our 5441 6200 hotline has been busy with the usual tragic scenarios.
But on the bright side, I have been able to release many of the fledglings. This means they can fly so much better and return to their family.
Simone, the Bush Stonecurlew, has moved on to bigger pastures in preparation for release.
It was sad to hear that she did quite a bit of ‘crying’ the first night in a new environment. Her foraging and hunting skills were getting finely honed and she was a joy to watch as she gracefully moved around the yard. Occasionally she would run with her wings out and do a little dance.
It is hoped that 2019 is kinder to our wildlife.
