LITERACY

Murray Darling Basin Commission images. Copyright. Reedy Swamp (north of Shepparton) – received 544 ML of EWA: The wetland is literally ‘humming’ with the sounds of waterbirds and frogs (which apparently goes on all night according to DPI Environment Group’s acoustic monitoring of the wetland!).  Latest counts show approximately 3,500 waterbirds staying in the wetland, which significantly contrasts to the site having no waterbirds prior to flooding only 8 weeks ago!  Notable records are ~200 Black Swans, ~2000 Grey Teal, ~500 Black Ducks, ~1000 Hardhead (White-eye Duck), 8 Australian Shoveller (threatened species) and ~40 Chestnut Teal.  Swans continue to build nesting mounds and are displaying territorial defence behaviour, and teal and black ducks are pairing up and exhibiting breeding courtship behaviour and observed inspecting nesting hollows.  At least three frog species are calling, with a fourth species (rarely heard in the district) awaiting confirmation (it didn’t call last night when I visited!).
