Friends of Durras doing what they do best for the environment

The Durras Pied Oystercatchers including chicks that hatched on Saturday as well as the nesting site on the sandflats survived the busy October long weekend. The people traffic adjacent to the fenced off nesting site was incredible. Brings home the value of people fences around shorebird nesting areas. Thanks so much to everyone for being so understanding of giving our local shorebirds some room. The Durras Lake entrance area is one of the most successful locations for nesting Pied Oystercatchers here on the NSW South Coast.
