Hooray, at last over this last week we have had
enough rain to cover the wetlands base of Edithvale Wetlands (30 km SE of
Melbourne, Melways 93 D8 ) and already the ducks have heard
about it. Having been dry since last year, it's great to see bird life
there again. There are already many chestnut teal, grey teal, a few coots, and
some swans. The hide will be open each Sat and Sun now, from 1-5 pm, with some
twilight openings when the crakes, rails, snipe reappear , and of course the odd
rarity. There are also deeper wetlands on the northern side of the road, with
several vantage points around it.
