GeoCatch is helping landholders to control weeds on their properties in and around Dunsborough. The Bushland Connections project will give incentives for removing woody weeds and planting natives, with the aim of reducing weed ‘escapees’ reaching nearby bushland reserves. Woody weeds are often chosen as garden plants but spread their seeds into bushland, quickly outcompeting native species and spreading.

Introducing the Eastern Yellow Wagtail this #WorldMigratoryBirdDay! This colourful migratory warbler is about the size of a Willie Wagtail and bobs its tail up and down in much the same manner. One Eastern Yellow Wagtail turned up at Ford Road in mid-March this year (must have heard about the border re-opening!) and hung around for 3-4 weeks. Incredibly, this was the first ever record of this species in the Vasse Wonnerup wetlands and it was in full colour - unusual in Australia because we only see them in non-breeding plumage. This species breeds commonly on Arctic tundra from Alaska to Russia; found in grassy and waterside habitats in Southeast Asian wintering grounds and over the years a few individuals have turned up in northern Australia, usually without much colour. The Busselton record joins Broome, Cairns and Darwin as the only other locations with yellow wagtail records this year, Wow!World Migratory Bird Day increases the level of awareness about the threats – both general and specific – that migratory birds are facing. By comparing their experiences and concerns, sharing their stories and activities, people around the world make their voices and actions reach out even further, throughout the flyways, underlying the fact that bird conservation is, indeed, a global issue.
