Let's hope the council comes through with the hide and access.

So many STP's are off limits for absurd and inane reasoning such as insurance, trespass, etc.

Keep the list informed please so we can lobby other councils.

Hi All,

Janis Hosking, David Geering, myself and David's daughter undertook the
Shorebird survey at the Dubbo STP on the weekend.

Two trios of nesting Magpie Geese were found with a total of thirteen
goslings. Great Crested Grebes (rare for Dubbo)and good numbers of
assorted ducks, swans and a few other common species were also present.

The Council is in the process of designing a bird hide at the STP so
that some of the site can be accessed without Council staff supervision.

Cheers Tim Hosking
