  1. The Ibis’s in the Gold Coast region are definitely large in number. But I dont see them as being too much of a problem. They seem to pretty much keep to themselves and dont harm much.

    • Thanks for the comment Shree. They are actually managed to be between 1500 and 2500 but are very transient, they will often fly up to Browns Plains for the night and VV. I don’t think they are much of a problem and if they have had to take refuge here where there is enough food for them to breed because of the droughts in the west then i think we should take care of them
