Tottenham marshes as seen through bridge railings on a warm autumn day. Strangely calm bit of London. beautiful but eerie .... perfect spot for some recordings? #leavalley #tottenhammarshes #bridge #canal #railings #bars #metaphoricalbars #urbanwetlands

The diversity of birdlife in the Laurimar urban wetland system always amazes me - from ducks, teals and native hens to egrets, rails and cormorants like this Little Pied Cormorant.
It’s heartening to see so many species adapting to these types of urban and peri-urban environments 🏡

There is nothing that smells better in this world than fresh fishing cat spray. Here @anyaratnayaka takes a good deep whiff, while @tharindu.97 hopes and prays that she doesn’t ask him to do the same.

BIBY TV’s latest video production @  https://www.youtube.com/birdsinbackyards/videos features Bar-tailed Godwits at Sydney’s Hen and Chicken Bay.  The story of their migratory behaviour is incredible as is their ability to find habitat in urban Sydney.

Colombo was given @ramsar_convention_on_wetlands Wetland City Accreditation on 1 October, 2018! This means that ALL the wetlands in the Colombo Catchment / Colombo Metropolitan Area are internationally recognized as important habitats (this is something like a World Heritage status). This international recognition will give a leg up to conservationists who work on protecting these urban wetlands and the wildlife within them. .
The Colombo Catchment Area is bordered by the Kelani River from north, Thalanagama and Pannipitiya from east, the Bolgoda basin from South, and the Indian Ocean from west.
.
The Wetlands that fall under this accreditation are:
Kolonnawa Wetland
Kotte Wetland
Heen Ela Wetland
Diyasaru Wetland
Baddagana Wetland
Kimbulawala Wetland
Thalangama Wetland
Madinnagoda Wetland
Mulleriyawa Wetland
It also includes the paddy fields in the Maharagama and Pannipitiya areas.
.
We are one of the 16 cities around the world to be given this title, making us a leader and an example in wetland conservation!
.
Congratulations to everyone who worked hard to make this happen. Especially the Wetland Management team led by Dr. Wijayaratne at the Sri Lanka Land Reclamation and Development Corporation. We are so proud to be working with you all!

Attractive new path between Peace Bridge and Eau Claire. And the wetlands at the east end of Princes Island are always wonderful. .

Another stunning set of fishing cat tracks at the Diyasaru Park. We love the little surprises our cats leave us from time to time 😍

There is so much to share with you. Walk with me and I’ll show you the bushtit nest hanging in the willow like a baby’s forgotten sock. The silver gleam of beaver lodge is easy to spot if you know where to look, also where the green heron hides. My heart too, tired of pretending, will be happy to accompany us. I won’t say a word, I promise.

Last week we did a night survey and came across not one, but 3 fishing cats. Of course no one had a camera (as it was locked in the office and the key was on a staff member who was fast asleep), so our phones had to do 🤦🏾‍♀️ .
But it was such an incredible feeling to finally meet our cats face to face. Months of camera trapping and we finally meet 3/5 in one night!

Gotta get my nature fix wherever I can -- nice to have wildlife encounters even with noises of busy city life in the background. Definitely being more liberal with my definition of a hike this late in the challenge. It's the last month of my #52hikechallenge and I've also decided to participate in #scrollfreeseptember so I won't be on here at all until September 30th, the final day of my challenge, when I'll post the photos from my remaining 6 hikes. I've been a little too into my phone lately so I'm looking forward to taking a break from social media. #urbanwetlands #hike46 #52hikechallenge2018 #socialmediabreak
