Dear all,

The problem of Pied Currawongs spreading seeds is a huge one in the Northern Tablelands and particularly around Armidale where there are many privets, hawthorns, cotoneasters and pyracanthas. The privet in particular comes up everywhere and in some of the paddocks outside the city there are hundreds of hawthorn bushes. The Currawongs themselves are a major problem staying around and breeding up in large numbers. From time to time the council has a blitz on the privet but the other berry-producers remain a major contributor to the large Pied Currawong population that stays around all year.
