McKellar Bitterns

I went up to McKellar yesterday for a quick squiz to see if I could spot the 
Little Bitterns again.
I was very disappointed to see that the reeds have been cut down to about half 
the height they were when I saw the Little (and Australasian) Bitterns 
previously - needless to say no bitterns were seen yesterday.

Does anyone know who cut it down, when, or why? The reeds were tall, but not 
THAT tall... If they were wandering through there cutting stuff down, I'm 
pretty sure we won't be seeing our little bitterns anymore. I would have 
thought some consideration would have been taken into account for an endangered 
species - or were they simply unaware?
