Changes since last time: Cumbunig and reeds flattened completely on opposite vegemite creek by heavy rainfall and water entering from stormwater drains.
What stands out: Cumbungi almost died off. Some clumps of reeds uprooted and washed up against log over creek.
Other Observations: 3 Dusky Moorhens, 2 Pacific Black Ducks, 1 Coot. Lots of litter.
Note: Readings for Ammonia and Phosphate were taken at water temperature of 25 degrees. Phosphate reading on site, at water temperature of 12 degrees was 0.0
