25-04-2006 Urban environment - little native vegetation at this end of thee wetland. New "borms" have been installed to help clean water (at West end) however even with very heavy rains last week to "pools" that should have developed behind them have not occurred. Are they working? Abundant wildlife - swans, ibis, dusky moorhens,ducks Poor 2 Good 8 Poor 4 Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 23
