Living at the edge of Lake Macquarie allows for regular observation of the
local water birds. This year the flocks of Little Black Cormorant have
increased significantly in size and this morning a flock of over 100 birds
flew along the lake edge. Previously the feeding groups have been small-
around 10 or less. I wonder if the larger flocks is a response to better
fishing now that commerecial netting has been stopped- or 3 years I think.

One can only imagine the size of the flocks that would have been around a
couple of hundred years ago.
