Matata Nest

Over the past days I have observed a pair of Matata carrying pieces of rush back to one spot in the Oioi within a few metres of our boardwalk. Fantastic. They must be nesting. Over past years there have been quite a few nesting. This is the first time we have found a nest.
Today I took a look and found that already there are two eggs settled into the deep rush cup. Hopefully there are more eggs to come.

 The nest is high up in the rushes about 1.2m above the water.
