I don't feel strongly about this, though I've commented in the past that the big dam has the potential to be as significant a wetland as Jerra, especially given the airport constraints on improving Jerra. For instance the standing dead trees at Mullies provide breeding options not available at Jerra.

Both are of course artificial, but we don't let that detract from how we value Jerra; I'd see them both as part compensation for all the wetlands we've destroyed.

However, I think that the key point is that the decision on the dam must be made in its own right, while considering any negative impacts on the woodland species. Those species don't need it and won't benefit from it.

Anyway, just a thought.
