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 is a tide in the affairs of egrets, too.

Most days, we’ll see an Eastern Great Egret wading/feeding in the low tide shallows below our house (and no, I don’t know if it’s the same bird each time or not). And occasionally, there’ll be one here or there on the island, fossicking in people’s gardens. But yesterday was the first time I’ve seen an egret perched up in a tree, in this case around ten metres above our waterfront. The tide was still only at mid-ebb, so maybe it was a case of being early and having to wait for its table reservation.
