Change since last time: Recent rain in last 3 days has deposited lots of leaf litter, mulch and rubbish from Vegemite creek, strong flow has flattened Cumbunji opposite Vegemite Creek.
What stands out: DO reading higher for this location. Could be due to all the rubbish?
Birds: Hoary headed grebe diving down towards the boardwalk. Coots.
Weather cloudy and cool. No flow.
