Submission by Anglesea and Aireys Inlet Society for the Protection of Flora and Fauna (ANGAIR) and Friends of Eastern Otways (Great Otway National Park) (FEO)
With rain predicted, the small group that gathered at ANGAIR on Monday April 12 were nevertheless keen to see an area so close to home that it is often overlooked.
Marg Lacey often goes out looking for birds and, after sitting for a couple of hours, finds little of interest. Recently her patience was rewarded with some unusual bird sightings in Aireys Inlet.
Common Heath: Epacris impressa
A wiry open shrub with prickly tapering leaves to 15 mm long, it has masses of white, pink and red tubular flowers, with an indentation at the base of the petals, hence its name.
The Annual General Meeting in March welcomed four new committee members: Ian Coles joins the executive as Vice-President and Sammy Bodycomb, Liz Fenwick and Jill Pollock join the committee.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide ANGAIR members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
