Observation details

Amazing numbers of birds, with males giving cooing calls, puffing breasts out and giving head arching and wing flapping displays, and females all the while giving low 'ruck - ruck' notes. Quite a spectacle, especially when ships came down the canal. Amazing video and photos by Chris Wood and Jessie Barry.
