The COG trip on the lake this evening observed significant breeding of the darter (about 6 nest at all stages including some lovely downy young) and of the little pied and little black cormorant (many nests - hard to count and much harder to see the stage as they are much more inclined to leave than the darter, but including some lovely dark downy young on one nest) in three spots several hundred metres apart in the willows etc along the eastern bank of Black Mountain Peninsula.
For those who might be interested in viewing this phenomenon the Molonglo River there are spots on the electric boat leaving from the little jetty in Bowen Park at 5:30 pm tomorrow (Sunday 16 Jan), as well as at 5:30 pm the following Sunday 23 Jan.
If you wish to join either of these trips costing $20 per person please contact me on 6288 7840 or by return E-mail.
