Spoonbills were reported (by the ANU Women's Birding Group from memory) nesting in this area in 1998.  Welcome back.

Looking out from Fulica hide onto Jerra Creek this afternoon, there was a Royal Spoonbill standing over what looked like a wall of thin branches. It had a branch in its beak and moved a few around, one at a time. It is on the island at the far end near where the pelicans usually sit. I'm not sure if it is a nest, but it could be. Something to keep an eye on.
