Every now and again I enjoy kayaking along the creek - even though I know that it is not a place where I will find many shorebirds roosting. The other morning there was a little breeze getting up on the bay but in amongst the mangroves on the creek it was very still and the reflections were perfect.
These mangroves were beginning to come into flower - again a perfect reflection. (Can anyone name it for me?) (This mangrove has now been ID'd as the River Mangrove - Aegiceras corniculatum - thanks Moyra!)
The tide height determines where the vegetation changes from mangrove trees to grass and taller forest trees.
There was patchy cloud in the sky and this made a big difference to the color of the water.
The only bird that stayed still long enough for me to get photos was this Little Pied Cormorant.
