We came across a galah trapped in netting at the new ponds in Fadden Pines this evening.
We went home to get scissors to cut the netting but when we returned two gentlemen were attempting to free the bird. After a bit of a struggle using the scissors to cut the net, they did free it and it flew away apparently unharmed.
We reported this to ACT Wildlife.

Of course not Sue. They’ve done their bit by giving you the phone number. It’s the birds’ fault. After all the netting is there ‘to protect young plants from birds who routinely (sic) eat and trample new plantings …..’ FURTHERMORE: ‘there may be a few issues along the way including … birds and other animals getting stuck in plant netting’.
Nobody answering the phone at Able Landscaping. Birds need to be careful not to get caught at weekends as well as not over deep water. I’ll let them know on Monday for the record.
And perhaps Able Landscaping
Of course I should have! Not that it would have helped the drowning Duck. I just phoned them anyway so they could log it.
You need to call ACT Wildlife Sue.
