Due to the excellent efforts of Michael Dickinson, Wildlife
Spotter / Catcher, 111 foxes in total have been trapped on land controlled by
RCC on the Island. Michael has also had a big impact on the population of feral
Myna birds with 38 Mynas trapped and humanely disposed of. Michael reports that
the Myna’s movement patterns have changed as from July this year - possibly due
to breeding time or pressure as they have left Amity [38 caught from a group of
40+] and are now very sparse in Point Lookout. Numbers of Mynas are still
present in Dunwich but not as visible as before.
