Congratulations Margaret!
What a lovely photo!
I suppose one gets blasé about one’s ‘own patch’ so  I hadn’t thought about the grass birds – I was actually more disappointed that the crakes stayed hidden. I had not expected so much interest in the grass birds! I go there every day or two and have become used to seeing them but I now realise that they are small and elusive and many folk have not had a good view of them or have seen them fleetingly and not known what they were.
I think one of the pluses of these smaller constructed wetlands is that everything is so close. In the larger wetlands so frequented by COG folk, the reed beds may be a bit distant.
Anyway, it was a pleasure to introduce people to the wonders of Gungahlin!
PS I was most pleased about finding the musk ducks on cue exactly where Julie and I had predicted!
