Landcruiser 200 catch can @30,000km

I posted a similar thread a few months back at 20,000 on my LC200, i fitted a HPD catch can at 10,000km and was surprised at how much oil had accumulated over the 10k period and in particular that it had water in it.
I just hit 30,000km and ahead of its service gave the can a clean out - more oil than last time and more water contaminated oil - second pic highlights this - it looks like reflection but that is just water based sludge, and its a lot thicker than it looks in the pic - anyone else experiencing this? i assume it is formed as a result of short trips?
