In such situations elsewhere (ie where access to a reserve requires crossing private property) I've seen where the management authority has negotiated access with the owner/lessee - with obvious provisos such as sticking to the route. I wonder if it wouldn't be worthwhile for COG to make an approach to ACT Parks to see if they can facilitate access? They will always have some contact with neighbours, for obvious reasons.
Just a thought.

Hi All, I'm telling you about my frustrating morning in hope of saving any other optimists from sharing it. The Gigerline Nature Reserve hotspot as we know it - walking down Lobbs Hole Track from the little substation (or whatever) on the Monaro Hwy near Williansdale, is now inaccessible. The gate across the creek that we used to climb through or around now has signs saying, in large new letters, "Private. Keep out. Area under video surveillance". Enough to deter me ☹. I could find no easy way around. I know there was chat about this last year sometime, but I convinced myself that it couldn't mean MY favourite go-to spot for Chestnut-rumped Heathwren and Yellow-tufted Honeyeaters. This raises a few questions. One of them is what does that hotspot mean now? Looking at the maps, the nature reserve starts about halfway down the track, and the birds I want to see are actually in the reserve. So another question is how is it legal for lessees to effectively take over ownership of public land by making it inaccessible to us?? Shouldn't there be a right-of-way or something down Lobbs Hole Track at least? Just sounding off. Thanks for listening... Yours in great frustration, Sue Beatty
