    Clean Up Australia Day is here again
    Sunday, March 3, 2013

    SIRAC has registered Scotland Island to participate once again! 

    This event encourages and inspires thousands of Australians to take to their local park, beach, bushland and streets and really help make a difference to their local environment

    If you would like to help out, either by grabbing a bag and filling it, or helping to supervise activities, please email cassgye@spin.net.au to put your name on the list.

    Come down to your nearest Wharf to collect a bag between the hours of 9am and 12.00pm.  Bring gloves, sunscreen, hat, sensible clothes and footwear – and don’t forget to bring some water too!
    Toby and his crew will be out on the Laurel Mae to collect material.


    Scotland Island Players

    Council's Natural Environment Reference Group
    Report from Alan Yuille

    I have been WPCA rep on the Council's Natural Environment Reference Group since it commenced about 6 years ago.

    Di Campbell and Sharon Kinneson are Scotland Island's reps.

    The group meets once every 3 months, which perhaps makes continuity difficult, but we have investigated various environmental issues, including flood studies, community gardens, Warriewood development,   Last November we looked at the investigation into Water birds and estuarine birds in Pittwater.  Yesterday we looked an a revised approach to /waste management.

    The last two meetings were extremely productive.


    The investigation called Pittwater Waterbird Habitat; Survey and Mapping given at the November was very detailed.  The survey was taken by K. Brandis, H. Watson and S. Ryall from the Australian Wetlands and River Centre from the University of N.S.W. It is dated August 2012.

    The survey studied Waterbirds, shorebirds, habitat requirements, migratory behaviour, the Australasian Flyway. and management issues including threats to these birds.
    I would recommend the study to any one in our community interested in our water birds.

    Most  of the Pittwater shoreline was studied including the north and south shore of Scotland Island and the sandy flats in Elvina, Lovett, Little Lovett and Morning(Towler's) Bays, Treharne cove, The Basin and Mackeral Beach, McCarr's Creek.

    Pittwater Water Birds face several threats. 

    A major present threat is disturbance during foraging and breeding.  The major issue here is that the birds are frightened, mainly by dogs running on the shoreline, frightening, chasing, very rarely catching the birds on the sandy flats or in the water.

    While it is illegal to let birds run on any Pittwater beaches, with the exception of two designated beaches, many of us delight in the sight of dogs frolicking in the water, chasing waves and seagulls.  Unfortunately the birds see it otherwise.

    The problem will be exacerbated with sea level changes. (Sydney sea level has already risen about 100mm since the1920s and is rising at an increasing rate, according to Prof. Andrew Short in his book on Australian Coasts).

    Sea level is likely to rise faster than sand and sediment will accumulate to form new habitats, so reduced habitats will become increasingly important for sea birds.

    If we value the birds we can act to protect their habitats and foraging grounds.

    Here is the link to access the survey online. This page provides a summary and a link to the PDF document.  http://www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/waterbirds


    Pittwater Council is working with Manly, Warrigah and Mosman, (SHOROC) to increasingly harvest valuable materials from waste and reduce land fill problems.

    Robina Bramich gave a presentation yesterday on the  SHOROC initiatives.  It seems we will soon have co-mining of recyclables, papers and containers, plus harvesting of green waste and compostable kitchen waste.  I am not sure how this will affect offshore communities where many of us compost all kitchen waste, and the Bays have no Green Waste collection.

    On February 25, Robina and some community reps will be travelling with the Garbage barge to see issues relating to offshore garbage collection, with emphasis on Scotland Island.

    She can arrange for similar voyages for the Western Shores, should we want this.

    She is also arranging for two more recycling bins for South Elvina Public Wharf.

    An Inspiring Movie about Garbage!

    Pittwater residents are invited to a free screening of the movie Waste Not at the Coastal Environment Centre on Friday 1 March from 6.30pm.

    Event organiser Jo Tulau said the award-winning documentary film advocates local, practical solutions for ‘transforming the mountains of stuff we throw away into something valuable again’.

    Ms Tulau said that Waste Not shows that recycling isn’t just something that we should agree with in principle, but a way of creating a fairer and healthier world.

    “After the screening, participants are invited to share some refreshments and an informal discussion about the movie and its message,” said Ms Tulau.

    “The session provides a great opportunity for the community to come together and share their ideas on how we can reduce our impact on the environment,” added Ms Tulau.

    Waste Not is directed by Ruth Hessey and shows what keeps a 21st century metropolis like Sydney clean and sparkling.

    According to Ms Hessey, on a day to day level our sparkling urban lifestyle is made possible by an army of people who deal with our garbage for us.

    In Waste Not we meet some of them: Catherine who works at a massive paper recycling factory, Ben the ex-footy player who supervises the inner city garbage runs of the city's south and Bisso, a refugee from Sudan who sorts through massive piles of household garbage eight hours a day.

    Waste Not also delves into the science behind the most innovative thinking on recycling in the world today. This includes hearing from the head of development at the CSIRO who talks about creating a new economic approach based on zero waste and maximum resource efficiency.

    Bookings for this free event are essential; online at www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/cecbookings  For more information call 1300 000 232.

    The Coastal Environment Centre is located at Lake Park Road, North Narrabeen.

    Letter to the Editor
    Missing black mother chook

    We bought some fertilised eggs for our broody hen and one of the chicks hatched about 7 weeks ago. They have been a lovely sight wandering around the garden together, with her very proud of her new baby! But alas, a dog (the culprit is known to us) that was not on a lead on Sunday 24th February chased her and she has now disappeared. Presumably dead and the chick is an orphan!

    I have pleaded, before, for people to walk their dogs on leads, especially when they pass our place. But it has happened again! Next time an incident happens I will notify the relevant authorities.
