|Red Fox at Yandina Creek Wetland|
Last weekend, BirdLife Australia surveys confirmed that birds are returning to the site in numbers. A pair of Black-necked Storks appears to have set up residence. Spotless Crakes are quite common in the reed beds. Small flocks of migratory Sharp-tailed Sandpipers were among species recorded along with some birds in the images in this blog post.

|Several pairs of Black Swan are back|
Hopefully Unitywater, perhaps in conjunction with the Sunshine Coast Council, will embark on a much-needed fox eradication program in addition to restoring all the wetland to its former glory.
