The diversity of Boondall is so varied for such a relatively small area; tidal flats, mangroves, saltmarshes, wetlands, grasslands, open forest and woodlands. As you would expect, there is a large number of wildlife, and these wetlands are a major migration destination for birds from as far away as Siberia. The birds you can just see here are some less exotic sacred ibis, of which we have very many in Brisbane. In the city areas they are a bit of a nuisance and will scrabble around in bins and rubbish for a discarded sandwich or a left-over burger. Anything really! It's nice to see them in a natural setting. What you can't see are the millions (well, seemed like millions) of mosquitoes that seemed to think that a free lunch on my legs was the dish of the day. The things I do to bring you a post.
