Bush stone-curlews in Byron Shire

The first time I noticed a bush stone-curlew in Brunswick Heads it was waiting at the pedestrian crossing, on its way to the pub, across the other side of the road.

 

Sainttina de Moleay, Mullum Garden Festival coordinator.

The Mullum Garden Festival was a wonderful day and a great success, with one child-size shadow of disappointment. We didn’t manage to make the dirtgirl Skype link – the internet wouldn’t work, it has happened before and it will happen again. The festival – and I want to apologise to everyone who came to glimpse dirtgirl – we are really disappointed too and hope you still had a fantastic day.

And to those quietly coughing ‘how unprofessional’ under their breath, well, yes good point; in fact nearly 100 per cent unprofessional. Our festival runs on volunteer contribution and labour. It was hard work but we had a great time, and are already planning another festival. A children’s festival, and I think we should try again with a dirtgirl event. So kids, we are inviting you and your parents to join the team to make that happen.

I’m looking forward to seeing you at the Garden.
