There is a large Silver Gull breeding colony on one of the islands in the western part of Lake Burley Griffin. The birds you are seeing are probably from this colony and taking a break from nesting and feeding duties.

Once or twice a day on the lake at West Basin, we see large numbers of gulls (sometimes up to 100) crowded together on the water.  They don’t appear to be looking for food in the water.  We wondered if anyone knows what they could be doing there.
