Author's notes

As if the pigs and deer were not enough of a problem round escarpment bogs, Bega Swamp also has a long term resident horse population. I don't know if they are truly feral or belong to neighbours of the National Park who are making use of the "long paddock", but they have been present in the 20 or so years that I have been visiting the swamp. We saw no actual animals, so the numbers are a guess, but dung was abundant and the presence of this large pile suggests there is a stallioin present, so they are more than likely breeding up beyond the 2-3 I have seen on previous visits.
