If the saying Red Sky in the morning, shepherd take warning has any meaning, then storms are likely to be coming to the islands. The sky was a bowl of color this morning
I walked down to the Cricket Oval and up to a corner House for all these different views from almost the same location.
The moon was straight above shining golden and bright…
Four main types of shore bird roosts are identifiable in Moreton Bay
• open sandy island or beach: found mainly on Moreton and North Stradbroke Islands with only two
similar roosts known on, or adjacent to, the western side of Moreton Bay. These types of roosts are
used by most species;
• salt and clay pan: scattered within and behind the mangrove fringe. Birds may find cover under
mangrove trees or shelter within clumps of samphire and sedge. These roosts are also used by most
• inland freshwater marshes: restricted to the western side of the bay and used by species such as the
Sharp-tailed sandpiper, greenshank and the black-winged stilt at all stages of the tidal cycle;
• mangroves: this is the preferred roosting situation of the grey-tailed tattler which roost standing on the
branches of the mangrove trees. The whimbrel, curlew, sandpiper, terek sandpiper and the greenshank
may also roost in this situation;
Saltmarsh and saltpan areas are integral with and generally adjacent to mangrove areas. Apart from
providing valuable feeding and crucial roosting areas for waders (Thompson and Kikkawa, 1989), these
areas also represent buffers for the mangroves and function as a source of material for detrital food
North and South Stradbroke Islands are barrier islands feeding sand sediments from ancient dune deposits
into the eastern part of Moreton Bay (Maxwell, 1970). The two islands are separated by an opening
nearly 2 kilometres wide at Jumpinpin; this bar and the Southport Bar at the southern end of South
Stradbroke Island are fairly unstable and do not allow a seagrass population to establish.
At the northern end of North Stradbroke Island a different situation occurs. Here the orientation of this island and
Moreton Island allow for large sheltered sand banks flushed twice daily by oceanic water.
From Amity Point to the northern end of Canaipa Passage shallow sand and muddy sand flats with
protection from prevailing winds and strong currents make a good habitat for seagrasses. At South
Passage sand has formed a fan-shaped bank known as Amity Banks. Further south the sand becomes
muddier with clay and silt from the mainland and low offshore islands.
Between Canaipa Passage and the Southport Bay at the southern end of South Stradbroke Island a series
of low, small islands form the deltaic complexes of the Logan, Albert, Coomera and Pimpama Rivers.
Between these islands are shallow mud flats and deeper channels. These areas, protected on one side by
Stradbroke Island and on the other by the mainland or offshore islands, offer excellent habitats for seagrasses (Kirkman, 1975). https://rsis.ramsar.org/RISapp/files/RISrep/AU631RIS.pdf
A total of 19 plant formations occur on the tidal wetlands. Six of those formations are dominated by the
mangrove Avicennia marina. Climatic conditions in Moreton Bay provide optimum temperatures of 18-
24 degrees for the growth of Avicennia marina for six to seven months of the year. Behind the fringing
mangroves, salt-marsh is usually zoned parallel to the shoreline and consists of three plant communities
broadly classified as:
• shrublands, the dominant species being Sarcocornia spp. and Suaeda australis
• sedge (Juncus krausii) and rush swamps
• grasslands (Sporobolus virginicus) as well as bare salt pans.
Seven species of mangroves are found in Moreton Bay and major areas of mangroves are located
throughout the Bay and in particular along the Pimpama River, Coomera River, North Arm and the
wetlands and waterways of McCoys Creek and Woogoompah Creek. Mangroves are the nursery areas
and ultimate source of food for many commercial and recreational fish species and are necessary for the
prevention of erosion, the provision of habitat, landscape value and to provide roosting areas for wildlife
(Arthington and Hegerl, 1988).
