I was at Kelly Swamp today, and can report that the water
level was up a few cms from yesterday, possibly engineered to mark
WWD. I also noticed your picture on the specially-mounted WWD
I suggest you arm yourself to deal with the following
1) What is that green scunge on the water?
2) Why are there so many rabbits?
3) Can you point out a Little Grassbird?
Not a great deal else to point out, but who knows what might
be there come Sunday? A pair of nuptially-plumaged Royal Spoonbills were
chasing one another in the scunge-encrusted shallows with evident intent.
There was also a pair of Spotless Crakes at the usual crake spot, visible from
the base of the tree that some excited observers used to climb at the
height of the crake season. They were on the far side of the channel
skulking over the fallen typha stalks, in view for several minutes, but
that was at 7pm.
