Strong winds delayed the first count of the season for North Brook Island. The rescheduled count took place just before the end of the month in fine but still breezy weather.
A total 15,974 incoming PIPs were recorded on the afternoon of 30 October. MANY thanks to QPWS staff and long term volunteers. The team was once again gallantly led by Margaret Thorsborne who instigated these counts and has been “keeping on counting” for the past half-century, as well as championing many other local conservation projects.
