I think I have already mentioned that it will not get better.

I used to say something to people with dogs, until I was told off by a woman with a large dog. I've recently had to stand right on edge of the bank next to silt trap to avoid three older teenage boys on bicycles. But as Shorty says - nothing gets through to some people.

Is there really nothing more that can be done to discourage people from jogging around Kelly's swamp? I was passed by a woman running really fast on the board walk and when she approached me near one of the hides, I pointed at the sign which said "no running" and asked if she saw the signs. She refused to acknowledge or even look at me. I previously asked the same question of a guy jogging in the same area who also refused to respond except by hopping for a few metres as though that made it OK. 


How about simple swinging gates with "in your face" signs for no running, no bicycles etc?


It's really frustrating that these people don't know or care about their impact on the birds that the reserve exists to protect. 😭
