For those who know the ‘old’ Winton W.T.Ponds in central-western Qld, you will 
be disappointed to hear that today, council workmen moved in and began using a bulldozer to 
remove the majority of the bullrushes around some of the ponds. We were there yesterday and 
it was alive with birds. This afternoon, it was a sad-looking place with the bullrushes piled 
up along the walls and mud everywhere. Obviously, this debris will need to be removed, 
probably tomorrow. Many of the birds had already moved out but we did manage to see a few of 
the crakes and grassbirds that were struggling to find somewhere to shelter.
