There appears to be a pair of Great Cormorants nesting amongst the Little Black Cormorants on Black Mtn Peninsula.  I didn't have my binoculars with me as I paddled past there today but from what I could see with the naked eye that seemed to be the case - 2 birds with an untidy nest at their feet, making that "clicking" sound, and not taking flight ( as they usually do) when I approached.
The Little Blacks have been active, several nests containing dependent young.  I could only see 2 Darter nests, one with 4 DY and the other with 3, but there may well be more.
In the same area there was a Magpie-lark entangled in some sort of man made material and dangling - dead - under its nest.  A female bird visited the nest as I watched, presumably to feed unseen young.
