User's notes

Sorry, not the best shots but I saw up to three Eastern Long-necked Turtles in the northern most dam at Callum Brae. I saw what I believe were three on the surface at one time but I could not get a photograph. The best I was able to get were two at one time. The turtles were in the middle of the dam, coming to the surface every few minutes to poke their heads up before descending again. At one stage, you can see in the photographs, two turtles were right beside each other at the surface. It was good to see them in the water because this dam was completely dry in February 2020.
