What to do when you have a King Tide, and an overcast sky ready to drench you at any minute. Why not go and see what birds are around the Inskip Point area? Thanks Mick for the day out. Beats sitting at home wondering what to do, seeing that we were not going to risk kayaking with the weather the way it was.

In one of the camping areas this Peaceful Dove was searching amongst the leaf litter for food, while the Red-browed Finch had no trouble finding his.
Little Black Cormorant (Phalacrocorax sulcirostris)
We knew it was going to be a King Tide, but I would like to know who told these Little Black Cormorants to roost this high on the ramp of one of the Vehicular Ferrys that take 4WD vehicles over to Fraser Island?
It seems like everything was going for higher ground including this Goanna. Just as well, as the water had by now reached the camping ground. Normally a peaceful spot to camp.
