Happiness is a wetland drying down after a flood and providing habitat and food for more than 3000 waterbirds! Spotlit in the late afternoon light, stilts, avocets, ducks, spoonbills and herons quietly forage for their favourite foods. The numbers are easier to count when they occasionally take to the sky for a fly-past. This wetland received environmental water in summer and winter of 2016, and then was filled naturally by the flood peak in December 2016, and still persists as a shallow lagoon in March 2017. Environmental watering prior to the flood has boosted productivity and the wetland is providing a rich food source as indicated by the large number of waterbirds present.
