Hi All,

Nicole and I are planning a trip down to WTP this Sunday and I was a bit curious about what influence the tides have on bird movements within the plant? On previous visits I've noticed that there is minimal shore bird activity along the banks and at the mouth of the Little River at high tide. Do the displaced waders tend to move onto the lagoons at high tide or move away from the WTP?

I was also wondering what the current state of the T-Section and Summer lagoons is at present? Last time we visited Summer 2 lagoon and many of the T-Section ponds were dry and cattle were grazing in these areas. Is this still the case?
