Author's notes

I'm down at Kisses Lagoon. It's 10.30 am and the air is full of the harsh screeching of Little Corellas in numbers too large to contemplate with sanguinity. (I am sorry about that). Photo 1 - What water/shore bird is that! I hear you cry. Photo 2 - Yes a subset of these mega-numerous parrots appears to be crossing categories and taking to the water. Photo 3 - here we see them practising their duck diving without actually getting wet. Photo 4 - Some more sceptical brethren have yet to abandon the trees.
