Title (Dublin Core)

New life in the wetlands

Description (Dublin Core)

One of the good things that has occurred with the second stay-at-home lockdown in Melbourne, Victoria is that we are all out walking more regularly. This enforced 5km limit from home has meant that we are looking more closely at our environment. These Australasian Swamp Hen chicks were recently hatched and stumbling with their big feet through their reed nest. A couple of days later a big rainfall event swamped the nest but the chicks have survived as I have seen them on the ponds in the wetlands. A beautiful and hopeful reminder that the natural world cycle of birth is going on around us inspite of the Pandemic.
