Low Isles PIP count Feb 2014

The Low Isles count team reported 7,454 incoming PIPs during the afternoon count session on 27th. This count only just made it into the month of February after mid-month target date for counting was missed due to very wet conditions.


During the month Low Isles received just over 700mm of rain. This was nearly double the average for February and provided a great boost for island vegetation after a prolonged rain-deficit.

Huge thanks to Low Isles Caretakers Wayne and Jenni and many LIPS volunteers for keeping on counting PIPs, plus so much more! An island cleanup – photo below – followed soon after the PIP count.

The latest PIP count at Green Island took place on a calm afternoon, February 15. Numbers were greatly reduced from last month. Carolyn and Gerry recorded just over 4,500 incoming birds on (totals 4,580 and 4,590 for their concurrent independent counts).

To Gerry and Carolyn, BIG thanks yet again!
