     Ah, what a difference 8 hours of hot sun can make!. Called-in to the very 
spot you described at 3pm this arvo on way back from Caloundra. Only stayed 15 
mins, just wanted to check that we had seen a Glossy Ibis as we speed over the 
causway this morning. Very few waterbirds around, nothing like the numbers you 
saw, I suspect most birds were sheltering under whatever cover they could find.
      Did get the Glossy Ibis (feeding very energetically), Jabiru, single 
Latham's Snipe and a couple of Sharpies. No Nankeen Night Heron seen, but I 
have had them here and on the other side on a number of previous occasions.
        It looks like the Black-tailed Native-hen and Australasian Shovelers 
may have moved on. I paid no attention to the non-existent bush birds!
