This morning we ambled along the shores of Tuggerah Lake just on sunrise. It was a beautiful clear day with the promise of heat. Flocks of birds flew over headed out to their foraging spots: Channel-billed Cuckoos, Galahs, Rainbow and Scaly-breasted Lorikeets, Little and Long-billed Corellas, Koel, Little Wattlebirds, Crested Tern and Silver Gulls.

A group of around eighty Australian Pelican formed an island off-shore, with more coming to join them every minute.



A Little Pied Cormorant emerged from an early fishing expedition and sunned himself on the end of the fence.


Welcome Swallows buzzed over the surface of the water and perched on the jetty.
