Jon Wren asked "Where are all the Ibis"
In NSW at present there are few Ibis to be seen on the coast because
they apparently have all gone inland to breed. I understand from NSW
NPWS that there are colonies of approx 100,000 pairs of Straw-necked
Ibis at Macquarie Marshes and at Narran Lake, and about 120,000 pairs in
the Gingham Watercourse, other Ibis species are also present. Other Ibis
rookeries are operating elsewhere in NSW and no doubt in SW Queensland
as well. So thats why they are not around. Get set for plenty on the
coast next year!
