Wild In Bayside: Bats meeting

We are very pleased with the response to our first "Wild In Bayside" meeting, held on Monday 31 August. Thanks to all who made the effort to come out on a cold evening to learn about microbats and our Batting4Bayside project.

Guest speak Robert Bender talked about his experiences in bat monitoring projects at Organ Pipes National Park and Wilson Reserve in Ivanhoe.

Bronzewing Habitat Planting Very Satisfying

A sunny Saturday morning with helpers planting out 320 grasses, shrubs and small trees which bare seeds that the bronzewing pigeons love. One of their favourite foods, the Ruby Saltbush was planted in abundance (see photo below showing a stray yellow golf ball for scale).

We have one pair that seem to call the area their home with the male checking us out by landing right in the middle of 2 volunteers as they planted. Hoping he was saying thank you.
