I have commented previously that if horses are swine flu, trail bikes are ebola.|
My memory of visiting the area to try (and fail) to find Heathwrens in a a gale is that the main understory is Kunzea ericoides, which isn't really great native vegetation.

It could really be worthwhile to have the conservation value of these blocks advertised more widely, if it isn't already occuring. With so much good bird habitat already degraded or destroyed, and with so much more to occur with the forecasts of 35 million Aussies by 2050, we need to work as hard as we can to protect what remains. I agree with you about the travesty of horses or other livestock trashing the place. Even if a syndicate could get together to obtain the money. I'm guessing there is a pretty good understory of native grasses and shrubs. Are there a lot of old remnant trees on the blocks as well? That list of species, with breeding as well, speaks for itself.
