This morning we were walking around the new wetland that has been
created off Goyder St, Narrabundah. There was an Ibis wading around
under the netting, and we observed it trying to fly off and hitting the
netting overhead. It had presumably landed in one of the ponds, which
are not netted overhead, and because there is no vertical netting
preventing it, it was able to walk to the section where it could no
longer take off. Surely the surround of the ponds should be netted so
that birds can't get trapped in this manner.
