We have a pair of nesting herons. Last January a hail storm came through and destroyed the eggs in the nest.It took the birds a few days to work out that there was a problem.

Our herons have built another nest high up in in the same gum tree. Unfortunately the chick and nest came down in the high winds during the week. One of the herons has been sitting up in the tree looking very mournful. There is still sufficient time to try again this summer, so we will be watching to see what happens next.

North Arm Cove residents and locals from Tea Gardens and surrounds had their questions answered about compost and worm farms at Scraps to Soil gathering facilitated by Kirsten Banks from Mid Coast Council on the 17 Nov. The aim of the workshops is to reduce the land fill of which kitchen scraps account for approximately 30% in the red bins of the Mid Coast area. Note that we are not supposed to put scraps into the green bin as there is not yet a composting facility, however there is one in the planning stages.

A few things about worms...
