The outlook for Mt Gravatt Conservation Reserve is looking good with good rain forecast through to February which will greatly enhance the habitat restoration at our Bushcare sites.

We are also seeing positive signs with our wildlife. Two Rainbow Lorikeet Trichoglossus haematodus chicks have been hatched out in one of the nest boxes installed at the Fox Gully Bushcare site.

When we first confirmed the chicks had hatched we were not sure that they were Rainbows but one week on there is now no doubt as their colours develop. Click on the photo to enlarge.

We have also had another Koala report this week from Ramita Street near Ekibin Creek.
