The UQ lakes were a happy hunting ground for me in 1991-94 when I was
at UQ. On the day after I arrived in Australia in 1991 I managed to
tick a good many of  the common water birds in a very short time

The best bird I ever had there was a Rufous Night-Heron.

When I was there the Thickknees were down by the Women's College as
well as the car-parks around the front. I didn't think it was a good
idea to lurk around the Women's College with binoculars to watch them!

Recieved wisdom then was that the Thickknees were on Campus because it
was an area with few cats and dogs.
