Lake Gillawarna is a local council lake and park in the South-west of Sydney that three years ago around 20 White Ibis started nesting on one of it's islands. Last year that number increased to 40 nest but on a recent check there is now over 130 nest. There are now over 500 birds that visit the lake each day so the number of nest may well increase. A mate of mine Darryll did a count yesterday and there was 69 birds nesting on the ground as they are now running out of trees. We are both wondering if this increase is due to the culling and nest disturbance that was conducted at the Sydney Botanic Gardens.
