Dear John and Sue,

I wish to thank you both  for conducting the tour of Crace wetlands on Sunday.  It introduced me to an entirely new location.  Perhaps we could name the Crace pond “Grassbird Heaven”.  I sat there for two hours this morning, and there were several little grassbirds busy in the reeds.  One was carrying a feather as long as itself, perhaps a late nesting attempt?  By sitting quietly for long enough the little birds finally came close enough for a good photo opportunity, and one of my images can be seen at this site.


Thank you again

Margaret Leggoe

Hi Julie,

As we worked out before, Reed warbler is top L and Grassbird is top centre just down a bit. It is a very important image. They are obvious if the image is enlarged. 

Can you crop and enlarge so folk just get the top LH segment? Dotterels are less important.

Alternately, people could enlarge it, zoom in or something.

Taken at Crace - poor quality photo but interesting to see Little Grassbird & Reed-Warbler (& others, incl. juvenile B-F Dotterel) in the same shot..
