    Leacys Bushland Reserve

    Have you taken a walk through Leacy’s Bushland Reserve, Currimundi? Do you even know where it is? Leacys Bushland Reserve is one of the last secluded bushland retreats in an urbanized area where walkers can appreciate how the land used to be full of tall timbers, shaded woods, hidden wildflowers and wildlife. Even Google doesn't know much about it!

    Drip! Drip! Drip!

    Have you ever wondered, lying in bed on a still night, where that dripping sound outside is coming from? Even when it hasn’t rained? Does the relentless ‘tock’, ‘tock’, ‘tock’ sound of water dripping onto a plastic bucket keep you awake wondering? Well, there’s no need to check your guttering. The culprit is probably a male Striped Marsh Frog (Limnodynastes peroni). This frog is very common. Its habitat stretches from northern Queensland to Tasmania. It’s very adaptable and often found in urban environments. From personal experience, I can vouch that includes Currimundi and more specifically, our back yard. Click on the audio-player arrow to hear the frog’s call.    …

    Nesting boxes in local parks

    In early February 2013 several CCCG members worked with Sunshine Coast Council Community Nature Conservation Officers Nadia and Rhonda to monitor nesting boxes which had been erected several years ago in local parks. This was an excellent example of a council-community partnership that has achieved excellent results for local wildlife. It was hard work over two days but in the end the team checked 49 nesting boxes in four parks in the catchment – 23 in Sunjewel  Environmental park and Creekside, 20 in Noel Burns park and 6 in Crummunda Park. Many local residents stopped to watch, to ask questions, to offer help and everyone said what a great job…
