The blue gum (pictured) in the forestry section is growing fastest and is now over 5m in height. Phil Kinghorn has begun form pruning.
There is no sign of seedling growth on the direct seeding site as yet.
Our February bird survey was notable for the lack of Noisy Miners and honeyeaters (both firsts!) and we picked up a pair of Boobook owls in the pines on the edge of ImLal South. Rosellas, which are usually common, were down in numbers. Another first was to observe a large flock of Goldfinches flying back and forth over ImLal North. Over the course of 15 surveys, we have now seen 70 species – see list under Bird Surveys.
