|A few of the Mudlarks group asked about the origins of the Cup & Saucer Creek wetlands. It didn’t exist in 2010 but came about from a cooperative effort of Sydney Water, The Catchment Management Authority, local residents and The Mudcrabs.|
Attached is an overview of the wetland project.
The area now hosts breeding by a number of waterbirds – Dusky Moorhens, Pacific Black Ducks, Purple Swamphens, Ibis, Grey Teals, Chestnut Teals among others(including Long-necked Turtles and the occasional Echidna).
The area has been transformed into a very productive water bird breeding habitat. Great work!
