Returning from a trip to Killawarra and the Warby Ranges today we passed
Lake Mokoan (all in north-eastern Victoria) and not for the first time I
wondered why this apparently suitable freshwater lake is so extraordinarily
devoid of waterfowl, indeed of waterbirds generally.  Does anyone know the
reason?  Is it related to the blue-green algae blooms about which visitors
are warned?
(PS  Whatever the cause, it doesn't apply to Sulphur-crested Cockatoos
because there were literally thousands roosting in the dead trees at dusk!)
