BirdLife Echuca District keeps busy working with others

BirdLife Echuca District keeps busy working with other groups in the region; we are represented on various working groups such as, Plains-wanderer Recovery Group and Environmental Watering Advisory Groups such as Johnson Swamp, Lake Boort, and mid-Murray wetlands. BirdLife Echuca Committee members, Simon Starr and Malcolm Cousland, have assisted Pre-duck Season Surveys with Field and Game representatives plus environment departmental people at Johnson Swamp near Cohuna. Both Australasian and Australian Little Bitterns were located and Johnson Swamp was closed to shooting due to the presence of the bitterns surveys. WIN!
