Sunday afternoon ‘light’ post of a range of birds I saw along the river today.   After weeks of Little corellas, I saw none this weekend.  Instead the Galahs were out in force.  Birds make everything better in my opinion.

I counted 73 Little black cormorants, though there could be more.  The bird sanctuary here at Boat Harbour  is working.
