DUCKING FOR COVER

Among the many joys of Spring comes the bird mating season, a time of frenetic activity in the bird world. However, Magpies in particular can become more aggressive than usual in protecting their new season young.
Some tips from National Parks and Wildlife if you find yourself threatened or attacked:

  • Take alternative routes where possible
  • Wear a board brimmed hat and sunglasses or carry an open umbrella for protection
  • If riding a bike wear a helmet and sunglasses. and
  • Fit a flag to your bike.

Reports of serious menace should be reported immediately to the National Parks and Wildlife- 4887 7270.

BUNDANOON GARDEN RAMBLE

The 2017 Garden Ramble, in its 21st year, held on 21st and 22nd October, was another success story for Bundanoon.
The eight gardens, revitalised by the rain on Friday, shone for the visitors on Saturday and Sunday. Visitors came from Sydney, Canberra, Wollongong, and the Blue Mountains with coaches from  Huskisson and  Canberra.

The addition of stalls at some of the gardens proved very popular and will be taken up again in 2018.
