‘By the date of our survey, pumps had been turned off for one week to allow ponds to dry out over summer. Muddy flats were emerging around their edges, providing foraging for wading birds.’

Thanks to our wonderful volunteers for their ongoing important survey work of the birds in the reserve. Susan Carden took the majority of photos this month, including our Swamp Hen feature image. Thanks to Sue Forster and Tania Ireton as ever for the reporting.

We are grateful to Bob Tammick for his coordination role.
