BirdLife Mackay on solid ground

This year BirdLife Mackay assisted with information on a new sign alerting beach goers of the importance of the shorebird roost at the mouth of Shellgrit Creek. The sign was a joint effort with the Mackay Regional Council (Jonathon Dykyj), Reef Catchments (Jess Berryman) and BirdLife Mackay.  Our winter surveys of the Eungella Honeyeater, are into their third consecutive year providing a strong foundation for establishing a realistic estimate of the population that will act as a solid grounding for future work on this restricted range species.
