Last week we had a lovely visit from SOSF staff to come and explore our work here at the centre. Abbie fell in love with Project as he was finding the underwater camera lens very amusing. He is currently 20 grams, which is double his weight compared to two months ago. We gave them a tour around the entre and then brought them down to the wetland. They will be coming back but this time with a group of kids so hopefully I’ll be back to help out.

As the wetland has been recently quite full we haven’t had many opportunities to do bird surveys. That being said, we did spot a few baby Chinese Bitterns last week around the wetland.
Pirate, who has been with us for two weeks, has not shown any signs of health problems so we will be putting him back in the wild this week. His left eye appears to be fully healed without causing him any distress.

Unfortunately we had no luck with our traps last week. The only thing we caught was a big freshwater fish that took us a few minutes to free due to its slimy scales. Hopefully we’ll have better luck this week!
Well tomorrow is a day filled with goodbyes as we'll be saying bye to Vicky, Pirate, Haze and Stinky. Read the blog next week to hear about our farewells!
