Birds Feeding on Lake Bolac

As Lake Bolac dried down in 2008 it became a feeding place for a huge number of water birds. It looks like the Lake is currently in the same state. (Photos by Michelle Casanova)

Who Dug Here?

John Anderson reported this ‘bird hole’ dug by swans and ducks on the verge of one of his lakes (Cockajemmy Lakes) near Willaura. The birds dig to find less saline water to wash their beaks as the the lakes are so salty – bird hole about 10000 ecu and lakes about 30000 ecu.
The brolgas favour another lake and dig differently…
