‘FSP’ is our usual way of referring to Fyshwick Sewage Ponds. This popular birdwatching venue has been closed to us for well over a year, first for the construction of the new electricity substation and then
for reconstruction of the margins of the ponds to avoid erosion from wave action. Our enquiries about just what that will entail have been met with the response that ‘rocks’ will be used. Now we have an idea of the progress of this long-running project
and an indication of what kind of rocky margins we shall see when access is again allowed. When they said ‘rocks’, they meant rocks. Crake-seekers, for example, will probably be disappointed.
