I would like to thank all those who have contributed Bush Stone-curlew sightings from Mulligans Flat.
During the winter months there were regular sightings of a group of birds in a general location between the main entrance and the woolshed. The majority of the group were birds that had been placed in the sanctuary approximately 6 months
Now that we are into the breeding season the group may well have broken up as the birds become paired up and territorial. It is during this period that the birds are most likely to leave the sanctuary and become vulnerable to predation.
It is also this time of the year and leading up to the autumn that pairs with young will be present.
Any sightings within the sanctuary and beyond are therefore most important for us to be able to obtain information on how many individuals there are within the sanctuary and whether they are breeding.
If you see any of the Bush Stone-curlews could you please try to see if the birds are carrying a leg flag, if possible take a photo and then let me know the number of birds, date and location of the sightings either through my email or
directly on 0418 679 847. Alternatively please inform at Emily Belton
Many thanks, Chris
