168207996/7/201511During the last week of May I noticed, what I thought to be very early nest building activity at this site. Had an opportunity to walk round the wetland to inspect old weaver nest sites. Here were at least 11 nests of which one was green. One male & one female bird wire in the reeds around the nests. It is very difficult to count the nests in these reads because of deep water and tall reeds.
