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.
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.

Curlews on the deck, alas.

The two curlew chicks on the left of the above picture are the same ex-little guys who turned up at our house only five weeks ago. Their parents have started to show them around our property, including the deck. What’s with the ‘alas’ in the post title? Well, apart from the frankly poseur-ish reference to Gertrude Stein’s bizarre ‘poem’ (not worth checking here), we’re currently in the throes of cleaning and resealing the deck planks, and curlew parents aren’t all that obsessed with toilet training.

And below, one of the adults and a chick having a rest in the entrance to our courtyard. The image is soft-ish because (a) I had to zoom from inside through a screen door as (b) evening was coming down.
