A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.
Because of restraints on time, and let’s face it, only a limited amount of material on a small island, we’re now recycling selected earlier posts.
There’s not a comment facility, but if you have a question, you can use the email gizmo near the bottom of the right-hand column.

Brightening up the island.
One can’t blog about Lamb Island without including Rainbow Lorikeets (nor, because of their constant movement, can one get a decent shot of more than a couple of them at a time). They abound here, and compete quite fiercely with other seed-eaters, belligerently seeing-off much larger Cockatoos and Galahs when it comes to claiming feeding bowl rights. When a gum tree blossoms and seeds and attracts a huge flock of them, the activity (and noise) gets as intense as their outrageous colouring.
