    1. Hi there, obviously you have commented anonymously so i don't know who you are, but I do agree with you, the ecology of the lake and surrounding areas is very important to the birds we see, and as much as this blog is mainly about birding i would like to add information about all of the other wildlife to be seen around the lake. Of course the fish is important as without them we wouldn't attract diving birds, such as cormorants on a yearly basis, nor would we attract birds such as Osprey and Grey Heron which rely on the fish for food. If you do want to help me adding new sections t this blog concerning the ecology and what makes Westport such a diverse place please send me an e-mail to salisbury1992@gmail.com.
