Sunny weekend.

Excellent week-end with Nathan visiting to do a tour of the new regeneration sites.

Inspiring stories from infra cameras he has monitored. We are going to place a night camera here.

Camphor laurel ( introduced from China) has always been denigrated and its ecological niche as a habitat for native fauna has never been discussed to my knowledge.

Camphor was introduced because farmers needed a quick growing shade tree because all natives had been chopped down. Their poor cattle were frying in the sun.

When we work as Herbicide free volunteers alongside the public road and beneath giant camphor trees, we have witnessed Black Cockatoos with their young feasting on its seeds. Amongst white headed pigeons, parrots ect. we have witnessed the food value alone of this tree.

Thank-you Nathan for allowing me to publish your Assessment.

N.Burton – An Assessment of Camphor Laurel_s Habitat Value for Tiger Quolls in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales

And the very disappointing Green party. A strong principled voice in Lee Rhiannon which some want to shut up. Hardly democratic.

Get back to the environment I say.

A wishy washy party as we see here in Byron Shire with its supposedly Green majority on Council.
