SITE INSTALLED – Department Agriculture – Stellenbosch
SPECIES – IbusHadeda, Eqyptian Geese
EAGLE EYES – STwo Eagle Eye units
RESULTS – A colony of IbusHadeda has taken over the small islands on the dam completely. They are very aggressive birds and have chased away all other birds. Their droppings have killed all the plants and even the fish were intoxicated by their acidic droppings. Our aim was to relocate the colony to re-establish the normal bird life. This was done over a period of 6 months. One Eagle Eye was placed on the main island, and the other one on the bank. The results were amazing. The IbusHadeda have moved away from the dam to another breeding spot. Installation in its third year in 2009.
