BlankHi Birders,

I was making a rare visit to Sydney's Centennial Park yesterday with my
family and happened to notice some breeding activity in  a couple of
Broad-leafed Paperbarks on a small inland in one of th main lakes. There
were several pairs each of Darters, Little Pied & Little Black Cormorants
and a White Ibis nesting in the two adjoining trees. Also in the tree was a
nest alongside of which was a Great Egret in breeding plumage. The Egret was
re-arranging the sticks in the nest. It was not possible to see if there
were any young in the nest.

Can anyone else advise further details of this breeding event?
