Dear Richard & birding-Ausers

The Whitehorse City council took my advice on blackberries for 3 years to save 
the Scrub-wrens and Superb Fairy-wrens, while the native plantings grew but 
then they went and sprayed the Blackberries while the Fairy-wrens were nesting 
in them and so we lost the lot.

Message #1 I would suggest is not to spray during the breeding season
