Hi All,

Took a quick trip out to Boondall Wetlands. Such an amazing sanctuary and like Marievale it is well supported by the local community. It is a large reserve located near the Brisbane International Airport and consists of river mouths, tidal mud flats and mangroves. There are bird hides and raised walkways through the swamps.



Little Black Cormorants fish co-operatively.. they herd the fish into groups and then take turns herding and diving in to catch. The whole group of a 50 or so birds hunted really fast down the river towards the mouth. The Brahminy Kite and a couple of Egrets plus the Silver Gull also followed them as they moved along.















Finally the cormorants moved off and the Brahminy Kite settled down.



A slightly better shot of the Grey Butcherbird which seems quite common in the area along with the Pied Butcherbird



Cheers,
Gordon
