With another 140 ha of restoration completed on Monjebup North this year we have just 150 ha to go next year to complete the 400-ha project. Included in this year's work was deposition of large quantities of vegetation debris from a boundary fence replacement project, designed to hasten the return of the reptiles that we know are otherwise slow to recolonise our restored landscapes.

Angela and I were out yesterday with neighbours and local supporters putting in another four fauna monitoring sites across the 2013 restoration area to ensure we have the robust baseline data that will allow us to demonstrate the success of our project.  At least 3 pairs of banded lapwings are currently using this year's restoration area, and will be gone by next year as dense vegetation occludes the area, but they're hardly short of their favoured habitat with the vast areas of cleared country we have here in the south-west!
