Alexandria, Sydney Park, wetlands

Sydney Park is a large inner city recreational area in the inner city suburb of Alexandria. It features a number of ponds and wetlands that attract many animals and birds. This is a view  of the pond in the south-east corner of the park with a Little Black Cormorant, also known as a Shag, is seen here sunning its wings, while its mate enjoys the view from the boardwalk.

  1. I love wetlands! Shag huh? I've never heard that term for a cormorant. Fun to hear the different "Englishes"

  2. A shag on an iron beam doesn't quite sound the same as a shag on the rocks.

  3. Wow!!!! That shag, a nice one too. I was on the Gold coast, and on a private canal. There were shags on the jetties, but they were always too fast for me.

  4. True, Bill. "Like a Shag on a Rock" is such an Aussie expression and always gives the Brits a chuckle because it means something naughty there. :)
