A pair of Collared Sparrowhawks is nesting again in the pines, corner of Hopetoun and Fitzgerald Yarralumla. I have seen the male which calls loudly: the female must be on the nest.
The NCA is proposing to fell a large number of dead pines in this plantation THIS MONTH. This would undoubtedly cause the birds to desert. I  contacted the NCA on Friday as soon as I read the YRA email mentioning the felling. I have not had a call-back and shall ring them again Monday. I also sent an email to Gang-Gang at the Canberrra Times as I thought a bit of publicity there might help.
Can anyone help? (Apologies for last unfinished email.)
