NOTES: Cover density: THICK; THERE ARE A GOOD MANY OTHER WATERSIDE SOUNDS. THE CENTROPUS IS THE MOST DOMINANT IF INTERMITTENT SOUND. THIS IS THE TYPICAL BUBBLING 'WATER BOTTLE' SONG. THE LAKE IS VERY HIGH - SOME ROADS AND RECORDING AREAS ARE INACCESSABLE. THE GRASS WOULD BE HIGH AND GREEN AND THE BIRDS WOULD BE BROODING. Habitat: Lake.
