Life in and around tropical Queensland wetlands

Looking sharp before El Nino takes over
Looking sharp and nicely balanced, Sharp-tailed Sandpiper (
) stands poised in the disappearing water at the western end of Tyto Wetlands.
Looks likely with deepening El Nino there'll be no rain for three months so long before Xmas the Sharpie won't be hanging around this part of the lagoon.
Nor will this Royal Spoonbill (
) be able to stand around with wet feet in this side pool along the northern boundary of the wetlands.
And Sacred Kingfisher (
) on branch overlooking a deeper section of the main lagoon may also be facing a dry outlook by December. Interesting times ahead ...
