84007926/8/20130Searched the camp & all over location for signs of this colony. Questioned gardeners and some older staff. Nothing found.Have been to Satara many times over past 3 years. As mentioned previously, have seen a few weavers on tables in restaurant and one scruffy nest remnant in gardens so never reported. The water features have been totally neglected, are dry and no reeds, bulrushes left, just a few stands of palm trees. Believe this site is not active.
