Posts on OL86/140

We have been informed by NSW DPI (Fisheries) that they have been in contact with the lessee of OL86/140 and that the lessee will be commencing remediation work on the early morning low tides at the end of April.

Others mistakenly put out items from the Council's will-not-be-collected list. Some of these rejected items stayed by the roadside for weeks afterwards.

WHAT IS A COMMON MYNA?

The Common Myna was introduced into Melbourne’s markets between 1863 and 1872 to control insects. It is now regarded as major pest - the flying cane toad. The Myna bird has been declared the second greatest threat to native birds after land clearing.

Once the birds are established, dramatic increases in density occur. One web site (below) gives numbers: “From one breeding pair, within five years they have the potential for reaching nearly 13,000 birds.”

As scavengers, they are a pest to fruit trees, especially fig, and raid soft fruit...

Just before Christmas 2017, concerns were raised about a canal - up to 16 kilometres long - being carved out of the 2400+ hectare former Australian Pine Plantation property off Viney Creek Road East. In an article posted today (Sunday 4 Feb) on the SMH website, Domain journalist Lucy Macken reports on a stop-work order being issued to the owner Phillip Lee.
