Yesterday morning I went to Lake Colac to check out the bird life. Normally this lake has a good healthy population of water birds, however, after a long hot dry summer the water level is receding fast. The number of birds also appears to be dropping.
The first image is of a colony of Australian Pelicans (Pelecanus conspicillatus). Here they were clumping in a bid to protect each other from the very strong westerly wind.
Near the point where I stood is the mouth of Barongarook Creek. This creek has a nice little of colony of ducks of various species.
