LOOKING FOR GANG-GANG COCKATOOS IN LANE COVE VALLEY, SYDNEY - SINCE DECEMBER 2016

Through a referral from Kurtis Lindsay as an eBird and Birdline moderator, I
was recently approached by a conservation officer from Ku-Ring-Gai Council with
disturbing news that the last reported sighting of a Gang-gang Cockatoo in the
Lane Cove Valley (northern Sydney) was in December 2016. It has been surmised
that they are (sadly) locally extinct in the valley. Unfortunately, I had no
more recent records that would prove this to be incorrect (my last record was
mid-2016 near Blackbutt Avenue in Pennant Hills).
If you have more recent evidence (ie after December 2016) that would help show
that this is not the case, please can you forward as much detail as possible to
me. I will collate and forward all information to the council officer.
Ideally, please can you provide as much of the following information as you
- Date and Time;
- Exact location in the Lane Cove Valley;
- Number and Mix of Birds (ie Male/Female/Young);
- Sighted or Heard Only;
- Activity Observed (including species of tree being used if feeding); and
- Any Other Relevant Comments.
You can forward your information to me at the above email. Let’s hope we can
prove that they are still about.
