Hello all. This morning I was watching a Jacana at Dowse Lagoon, Sandgate 
(Brisbane) when I suddenly realised it was being stalked by a very large Water 
Rat. Lucky for the bird it woke up to what was happening just in time and 
retreated to the safety of a retaining wall. This is the first time I've seen a 
Jacana resting on an artificial structure! Check it out at I've seen a Water Rat stalking 
water birds before, but never successfully. Anyone else seen this?
Cheers Steve Murray
