Lake Woods, which is really Longreach Waterhole where I've been, requires very few words other than if you love nature, or bird watching, or peace and quiet (besides the birds squawking), and you are travelling up or down the Stuart Highway near Elliott, you must go in and see the spectacle which is taking place. At the moment there are over 300 Pelicans, thousands of Little Black Cormorants, Pied Cormorants, hundreds of other birds including Great Egrets, Great Crested Grebes, Caspian Terns, Whistling Kites, Little Eagles, Black Kites, the list is large but the photos are way more numerous so I'll stop there and hope you enjoy the photos. Most of them can be enlarged by opening them in a new window rather than seeing them as the default slide show.
Australian White Ibis
Little Black Cormorants, just a few of the huge groups flying in.
How many different birds?
Whistling Kite one way, Caspian Tern the other - this scene repeated over and over with different species.
