What the Papers Say

Corella cull needed

Letters To The Editor

I found Melissa Price celebrating the State's environmental diversity interesting (Opinion, 21/2).

However, as one who moved into Beeliar Regional Park, an area of prolific birdlife, nearly 20 years ago I can say things have deteriorated seriously.

The birds that seemed to be most prolific and which were hugely engaging, the Port Lincoln parrot and Carnaby's cockatoo have become a rarity here in the last few years. I was surprised to see a solitary parrot a few days ago.

The bird of the moment is the corella. This bird is kicking out the other birds' babies and taking over their nests. I have seen close on a thousand in the backyard of the Fremantle Arts Centre.

When is the Department of Environment going to take action in this regard?
