Winton, Qld

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.
