(There is an interesting debate unfolding at the base of the Mitchell's Pass near Ceres. We include correspondence about this as user comments. - Ed.)
I trust this finds you well.
I was notified yesterday that the department of agriculture will be chopping down alien vegetation along the Breede river starting today.
My concern is that the birds are all nesting at the moment and more than likely have fledglings in their nests. I do not know which species would utilize black wattle gum etc as nesting sites. Is this a threat to them or will the birds have developed sufficiently to survive this?
If not, is there anything we can do to try and get the department to do this opperation slightly later and what would be a good time.
I look forward to hearing from you with reards to my concerns above.
