We had truth be told, taken a trip down to the Jawbone Conservation Park at Williamstown. One of my Flickr mates David Nice, had reported a Great Crested Grebe. As the ponds can give good access to the birds in quite a few places, it seemed like a good idea to have a looksee.
On our day, however, the Great Crested Grebes (there are two there), must have been hunting out in the open water, as not a crest nor a feather were to be found.
As the Jawbone lakes are quiet water, the water birds use the area as a resting spot, and also to get to know one another it seems.
We watched for 15 to 20 minutes a pair of Pied Cormorant that had more than fishing on their mind.
