Some great images Kym, and it allows me to remind subscribers that you can see these firsthand if you join me for the COG annual boat trip up Molonglo Reach on 16 February.  Details are below.
Jack Holland

East Basin/Molonglo Reach;  Sunday 16 February – Electric boat cruise

This will be the outing/cruise for 2014 on the upper parts of Lake Burley Griffin (East Basin) and the adjacent Molonglo River Reach, where late summer or early autumn is the peak time for nesting, with darters as well as three species of cormorant known to breed there.  The area is also rich in other water birds, and a variety of land birds can be seen on the banks. 

The boat trip will last about 2 hours from 8 am and will cost $20, payable in cash on boarding.  This year we will again be travelling in the electric boat “MV Gull” which can carry well over 20 people.  The boat will allow both a quiet approach as well as access to areas difficult to get to from the land.  As Kingston Harbour is now open and operational, the point of departure will be from there.  Participants will need to leave their cars in the Glass Works car park and walk across.

Registration for this field trip is essential.  Please book your place on the boat with Jack Holland (on 6288 7840 AH or by E-mail on m("","jack.holland"); href="">).
