Helping to save the local Hooded Plover

This issue looks at the fantastic initiatives to help Hooded Plover breeding success rates along our local coastline with a generous donation by the Directors of The Cape. We also follow the trail of the secretive Buff-banded Rail around the estate and also look at how some of our fabulous home garden habitats are providing valuable biodiversity hot spots for our many creatures, small to large, even after just four years of growth.

  1. Good morning David,  I hope you’re keeping warm and dry.

    Can you tell me the name of the spider you have pictured on Cape Chatter because I took a photo of this same species Dec. 2020 and have tried to identify this without any luck and coincidently was showing my photo to one of our daughters at the weekend.

    Many thanks for all your information,  Cheers,    Lesley Stainthorpe

    1. HI Lesley, it is called a “Spiny Spider” (aka Jewel Spider) which i think is a very drab name for such a beautiful creature. Looks like a piece of indigenous artwork doesn’t it?
