After seven years of surveys of Winton Wetlands, 2020 heralds an exciting new phase. We will now be looking at previously unexplored territory at the Wetlands. The Regent Honeyeater Revegetation Project requested BLMG to survey some of the areas that they have revegetated at the Wetland. So we are adding four new sites to our quarterly survey program. Team 1 gains a new site along Lake Mokoan Rd. and a new Team 6 will check three sites near the Dam Wall area. These areas have great understorey habitat, and hopefully lots of bush birds.
Our next survey is on Wednesday 5th of February. We now need a minimum of 12 volunteers to form 6 teams and finish the survey by about 12 noon. Places are limited, so book in soon! If there is a Total Fire Ban on the 5th for the North East district, we will try to re-schedule the survey for Wednesday the 12th.
