We never cease to be surprised at what we see when out and about on Pomeroy Reserve.

swimmer he swam in a perfectly straight line to the other side and without taking a breath
just carried on walking up the bank and ambled off into the bush. He was not even side-
tracked by a dabchick busy swimiing and feeding around him
