Crake's Corner Mosaic


Designed and Made: By students of Bayside Secondary College, Millers Road, Altona

Bird Fact: Crakes are shy birds that are often difficult to see before they disappear into the reeds. They feed on aquatic insects and plants and nest at the base of grass tussocks in the water.

Surrounding Species: Common Reed (Phragmites australis), Wirilda Wattle (Acacia retinoides).

 

Point of Interest: Apart from the stepping-stones, the lakeside area in front of you is a popular bird feeding spot. Try feeding the birds on land rather than in the water because the nutrients from their droppings and uneaten food help to create banks of algae in the summer. These are both unattractive and take oxygen from the water.
