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 a limited amount of material on a small island, we’re now recycling selected earlier posts.

Damn. Another grey morning.


This egret, and the cormorant sitting on an old crab pot exposed at low tide, seem to be as unimpressed with this morning’s uncharacteristically gloomy weather as I am. This is the second drizzly spell in as many weeks, and we’re just not used to that here on Lamb Island. And frankly, if it keeps happening I’m gonna ask for some kind of discount on our council rates.

Update: The shot above was taken around 10am. By 2:30pm, the sun was shining and things had improved, as the picture below shows, with the crab pot’s buoy circled. It just goes to show the power of the Internet and what can be done when council’s revenue stream is threatened.
