Full to the brim

Another deluge has taken Cairn Curran Reservoir to capacity … and more.

A visit this afternoon revealed the return of Australian Reed-Warblers. At least two individuals were calling from amongst the reeds near the highway bridge at Joyce’s Creek, popping up briefly to view the intruder.

Nearby, a pair of Willie Wagtails were working on their first nest of the season, the foundations of grass and cobwebs newly laid on a horizontal branch of a sapling River Red Gum.

A little further along two Little Black Cormorants were perched above the just above the rising water.
