At West Basin there is a patch of reeds on the edge of Lake BG.  Today it has at least 4 adult Australian Reed-Warblers there and at  least 2 dependent young (difficult to judge the exact numbers among the reeds).   I was interested to see that one of the adults was flying up into trees nearby, presumably to find food for the young ones who gaped and cheeped on its return.  My anxiety about the future of West Basin continues to rise.  The paddle boat owner has to leave by April 2015 and the bike hire man has to leave by Christmas.

A response I had to my email to Andrew Barr indicated that he thought that my concerns about the wildlife at West Basin were unnecessary as sufficient studies had been carried out.
