A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.

Don’t look now, but Spring is on the way.

It’s that time of year when the island curlews are nesting (as, I guess, are many of the other bird species that Lamb Island is not-so-quietly famous for, it being a declared bird sanctuary). The couple above have chosen to nest on the edge of the island playing field, up against the trees shown here. And, as curlews do, they’re staying absolutely motionless, studiously looking away from me, working on the principle that if they pretend I’m not there, I won’t see them.

And a note: The shot was taken from a distance on full zoom so that they weren’t disturbed.
