East Coast Low aftermath

Not so much the damage caused but the sudden appearance of a multitude of bodies of water everywhere has meant water birds everywhere too.

One patch along Heart Hall Road behind the RAAF base in Sale gave wonderful photo opportunities. A flock of 50 or so Black-winged Stilts did a bit of formation flying. When did you last see a bird bump into another whilst tightly packed?

The Whiskered Terns flew back and forth in tight formation too, quartering the water then dropping down, under the surface, to grab their meal. There were about 100 or so.
Those Whiskered Terns really get down to it.
