Extensive dieback of the reeds at Fadden Pond over the past year has done little to hinder the Swamphen breeding (their rapid increase after appearing about 3 years ago I suspect is part of the cause of their deterioration), with 3 downy chicks, another bird on a nest, and copulation also observed. Coots are sitting on a nest, all quite visible with little cover in the few remaining clumps of dying reeds.
