Waterbird Feeding Frenzy at Flooded Field just north of Moruya.

Howdy folks,

 

It appears that the recent rains have caused fields to flood which have in turn attracted waterbirds.

Today I had 230-300 Cattle Egret

60-100 White-faced Heron

3-4 Great Egrets

100+ White Ibis

80+ Straw-necked Ibis

6 Royal Spoonbills

100+ Silver Gulls

+ many of the commoner ducks species and Masked Lapwings foraging together in the fields just north of Moruya. It was interesting to note that many of the Ibis were juveniles

Cheers,

D.
