Hi All,
I took some photos beside Lake Tuggeranong yesterday, and I was surprised by 
the absence of waterbirds.  Lake Ginninderra in Belconnen has lots of 
waterbirds as well as reed warblers.  The habitat seems very similar, yet the 
bird populations are very different.  Does anyone have any thoughts on why 
there would be such a difference?  The main thing I can think of is that Lake 
Tuggeranong has a lot fewer native trees around the shores, and I don't think 
there's any islands for waterbird habitat.

It still seems odd that with such a large body of water and reeds I saw no 
waterbirds or warblers at all.
