A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.
Because of restraints on time, and let’s face it, only limited material on a small island, some posts are being recycled/updated from earlier.
There’s not a comment facility, but if you have a question, you can use the email gizmo near the bottom of the right-hand column.

The early bird gets the nectar.
This blog wasn't supposed to be about birds, but I just couldn't resist posting this shot. I think this is a female Scarlet Honeyeater, probably only around 12 cm (5 inches) long, and feeding on the newly emerging flowers at the top of the new long stalk of one of the grass trees that occur naturally in the bushy areas of Lamb Island. The neighbouring plant’s stalk on the left is from last year, not quite completely stripped of seeds back then by Galahs and Rainbow Lorikeets.
