Along Joyce’s Creek

Along with the Loddon River, Joyce’s and Middle Creeks are the main tributaries that drain into Cairn Curran Reservoir. These latter two small streams converge just before entering the storage near Plaistow. In recent years they have barely flowed, apart from the big wet of 2010-11, so it great to witness a steady flow this winter.

A few ‘commoners’ were sighted during a visit at the weekend, and while they don’t quite match the Golden-headed Cisticolas they a worthy of a quick glance!
