The annual monitoring of bird activity in Tikitapu Reserve to determine if bird abundance is increasing as a result of the pest management strategy, has now been completed. A comprehensive report, including comparisons with counts made in previous years will be prepared for the Bay of Plenty Regional Council which supports the pest control programme.
A monthly roster of volunteers ensured the Mistletoe and Nature walks were checked and maintained.
A big thank you to all those who have helped with the Tikitapu Pest Control Project this year. The project depends on your assistance.
New volunteers are always welcome and if anyone is interested in being involved in the pest control programme, or going on the roster to check the Nature and Mistletoe walks, please let me know. Some of our older volunteers are finding they are no longer able to continue with this project and we would love to get some younger people on the volunteer list.
