Management at PAWA is really concerned about the big estuarine croc in
Leanyer Sewage Ponds  - they haven't been able to catch it.  And I don't
think this one is like Ben, the croc that the sewage pond workers used to
feed, and ended up so tame they used to stroke it.

Consequently I'm not taking anyone in at the moment just in case they turn
out to be a birder so obsessed with a new twitch that they can't stop
themselves from leaping out of the car.
