Injured Wedge Tail Eagle

We found a young Wedge Tail injured on our property

Dutch wwoofers Tim & Eline & I went out for a walk with the horses & discovered a young injured wedge tail eagle on the lower track of the property.

The rescue started!

With the help of Trevor from across the road we were able to capture him & bring him home and then meet up with Anita Turton of the SA Bird of Prey Rehabilitation Centre

www.communitywebs.org/SABirdofPrey/

P1020264Anita nursed him back to health to enable his release on Sunday 24th February 2013.

Leon & myself along with Raphael from Germany, Anita & Theo, Trevor & Anne, Scout, Alia & Oliver (who came along to buy some Cayuga ducks) were present for the release.

His initial flight was short but then took off again over the gully and then into the distance.

We felt this was an amazing once in a life time experience for those present

Trees For Life Distribution Day!

Today we were excited to go down to the Willunga Distribution centre to pick up all our materials and supplies to grow this years seedlings as part of our Trees For Life Scheme.

Over the next few months we will be planting the seeds which will eventually grow to be the seedlings that will become part of the woodland around SureView Farm.

This year we have picked up the following seed packs;

  • Gold-Dust Wattle   (Acacia Acinacea)
  • Coastal Umbrella Bush   (Acacia Cupularis)
  • Myrtle Wattle   (Acacia Myrtifolia)
  • Vanilla Lily    (Arthropodium Strictum)
  • Narrow Leaved Bitter Pea    (Daviesia Leptophylla)
  • Rouch-Barked Manna Gum    (Eucalyptus Viminalis Cygnetensis)
  • Native Lilac    (Hardenbergia Violacea)
  • Prickly Tea-Tree    (Leptospermum Continental)
  • Dryland Tea-Tree    (Melaleuca Lanceolata)
  • Large Leaved Bush-Pea    (Pultenaea Daphnoids)
  • Golden Spray    (Viminaria Juncea)
  • Fuzzy Daisy    (Vittadinia Cuneata)
  • Yakka/grass Tree    (Xanthorrhoea Semiplana)

We should have enough seed and the materials to produce 1000 seedlings.

All of the seedlings we have picked up are native to this area and will be used not only around the farm but as part of our roadside revegitation scheme as well.

Camping area project – tree planting update.

Leon took Wwoofer Tom up to the camping area to check on the progress of the trees we planted for shelter when Tom was last visiting 8 months ago. After clearing back all the weeds and whipper snipping around the results could be seen. Happy to see about 60% of the trees they planted had survive

d despite the best efforts of some kangaroos, Tom & Leon re-planted the trees that didn’t make it from their Trees For Life seedlings. We are looking forward to Sunday 18th when they pick up this years seeds from the Willunga Depot.
