There are two darter nests on either side of the Molonglo River below
Scrivener Dam, (just downstream from Tuggeranong Parkway bridge) each
with a bird on, and an additional adult bird in the vicinity.  I also
counted 16 little pied cormorants, including several birds in the nest
building process - birds at the nest breaking off sprigs of willow from
the branches above them while other birds were were flying in with
longer sticks, landing in the tree above the other birds before handing
these down to the "builder" below.  At least four nests on one side and
three on the other, either finished or under construction. Very
interesting to watch.
