After months and months of preparation and work on the Lord Howe Island Rodent Eradication Bird Husbandry Trial, the project has come to a successful end. All 30 birds that were captured in July are back in the wild, roaming the island.
Spring is upon us, and as birdos, we are very excited to see the arrival of the summer migrants to the island. The skies, trees, and ground are starting to fill with species of tern, shearwater, and tropic bird, to name a few, that come here each year to nest. We are hopeful that we will be able to see some hatchlings before our time here is done!
On Monday 7th October 2013 Steve from Shearpower2Ewe will be coming to Backyard to Bush to shear our sheep. Come visit us at the Farmyard and watch as Steve shows us how he shears them and you could even get a chance to hold some of Wini’s wool!
Recently the Bird Show has enjoyed some rather windy days, a couple in excess of 50km/hr! Winds this strong can be a little hectic for our birds, and sin these instances some stars may not actually come out, but for others these winds make for the most exhilarating of aerial displays.
