76418087/12/20132Three other species nesting in same vicinity - thick-bill, spectacled weaver and rattling cisticola in thick sedge (botton left of first pic). Cannot access Spectacle weaver as it is in deep water in the bulrushes covered with dense creepers. Know the nest is there because they are carrying grubs into the thicket. Cisticola also feeding.
