The next TLC meeting is scheduled for Thursday 13th July 2017 (tentatively) at 6.00pm at the Recreation Club.
Members of the community are welcome to attend. If they have questions to raise, it is a good idea to submit them a week or two beforehand so Main Roads can answer them.Toodyay Road Liaison Committee page..
Part of my research is to find every nesting pair of wedge-tailed eagles in the Perth study area (we have 25 so far)
in order to calculate the breeding density.
And this is where you come in!
Gidgegannup has 'wedgies' nesting in National Parks, but there are also large areas of bush on private land which are likely to support other breeding pairs, too.
I have collaborated with several landowners in the past few years and these people have kindly provided information on eagles, and access to their properties to monitor nests.
I am extremely keen to collaborate with more people, especially those living in East Gidgegannup along Berry Road, and towards Morangup.
This might even lead to you helping satellite-tag or band a young eagle!
Last year several people brought their kids along to see the juvenile eagles up close, providing a wonderful educational experience for everyone!
If you know of eagles on your property and are willing to assist with this research, please contact Simon Cherriman by email or on 0422 916 747. Read more..
