Thanks to all that provided information on the importance of verge 
vegetation on waterholes, swamps etc. It is pleasing to note that at 
todays Council Meeting the move by Cr W Bidgood to "clean up" Mullers 
Lagoon was defeated. The Cr was reminded  that a management plan exists 
for the Park with a recommendation from the previous Parks and Gardens 
Director Vince Winkel ( Centennial Lakes Project Cairns fame) to retain 
the verge vegetation to promote a suitable habitat for wildlife. I 
recall Cr Frank Bidgood the father of Wayne back in 1992 wanting to 
sub-divide a portion of Mullers Lagoon that was flood prone, this was 
ultimately defeated but I expect that there must be some gene 
responsible for their opposition to Mullers Lagoon providing good 
habitat for wildlife
Great to know that a bank of information is available to access at your 
fingertips. Have a safe and joyous festive season and get some great 
birding done.
