Have just returned from 9 days in SW Qld and was struck by the absence of 
cormorants during the trip.From home at Maleny we travelled west through 
Brisbane Valley to Yarraman, Cooyar, Dalby, St George, Cunumulla,Eulo and 
Yowah, and returned the same route.Despite stoping at most dams, large and 
small, visible from the roadside, and spending time at Lake Broadwater, Warrego 
Rv and Beardmore Dam (St George), 5 days at Bowra Cunumulla (separate report to 
follow) we saw the grand total of ONE Little Pied Cormorant over the 9 days and 
1950 kms, no other corms at all.
 What are the possible reasons for this? In drought times I would have thought 
they would be congregated on these bodies of remnant water.Or have  they left 
long ago? Is it the time of the year?
Would appreciate any thoughts or comments on this absence.
