I just want to ask a question. Read the following statement if you will:
Native bird populations could be completely wiped out in some areas hit by this year's mega mast.
It's set to be the biggest seeding event in more than 40 years, but half-a-million hectares of forest will receive no 1080 predator control.

"There's a huge number of rats, and there will be a huge number of stoats in our forests this year," says Peter Morton, of the Department of Conservation (DoC).

The threat to birdlife this summer is so much higher because climate change is making our native bush go through an explosion of seeding. That causes a chain reaction - the more seeds the more birds, the more birds the more rodents.

"We'll lose some of our most precious treasures in those forests," says Forest and Bird ecologist Rebecca Stirnemann.
Ok. So, if you reintroduce birdlife after a mega 1080 drop which killed say, well, everything, will the rodents come back in greater numbers because of the abundant birdlife, or will some invisible barrier stop this from happening. Ever. ? Just asking because it's not obvious.

There was a hack on the website running yesterday by someone or something that implanted a Cheetah icon overlay onto the screen. I was so sure it was something to do with the rugby but my doubtful mind wondered if it was to do with this topic :lol:

What I have noticed before and after a 1080 drop...

Before the drop there are a fair number of pesky critters. There is abundant birdlife and winged critters.

Immediately following a drop (we are near the Hunua ranges) the birdlife disappears, the birdsong is noticeably absent. Winged critters are also diminished greatly. The pesky critters are also diminished, however in 4 to 6 weeks they are the only ones coming back with avengeance!

It takes 10 to 12 weeks for the birdsong to come back.

Honestly if you employed hunters they would be far more choosy about their targets, the water wouldn't be poisoned, and new industries would be born.

The Earth won't stand for indiscriminate acts of terrorism for much longer, and we're in for a rude awakening I feel.

How long has 1080 been used in significant areas of New Zealand?
