Coorong pelicans

Coorong , originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

As we drove on, suddenly, 100’s of pelicans flew over us in squadrons of birds in groups 20 to 40 at a time. It was an astounding sight and we had to pull over and watch them pass, trying to capture them on film, we watched for 20 minutes before moving on.

This area is one of the main breeding areas for pelicans in Australia. Further along the road we came to a turn off to Jack’s Point, the viewing site over to the islands where they breed, but the breeding season is to the end of October so no activity on the islands.

  1. Hi Al, your itinery for your trip to the Coorong sounds a great one. Yes so much more to see in the area, we told ourselves we must come back for another look.


  2. Hi Jack, Pauline.
    I’m looking forward to visiting the Coorong later on. Last time it was very dry – not like Queensland at present! I have posted my next trip itinerary on website: there may be somethings of interest to your followers! Keep on keeping on. I’m surprised you got lost in Adelaide- those trousers Jack is wearing should stand out like a beacon to anyone!!! Al.
