Low Tide Mangroves Russell Island

As soon as I look out and see that it is low tide, I know the mangroves are now exposed and I can go down to the waters edge and walk through the mangroves and down along the bottom of the Bay. If its early morning, the area is full of midges and mosquitos andContinue reading “Low Tide Mangroves Russell Island”

Island Mangroves

Mangroves are a group of trees and shrubs that live in the coastal intertidal zone. There are about 80 different species of mangrove trees. All of these trees grow in areas with low-oxygen soil, where slow-moving waters allow fine sediments to accumulate. https://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/mangroves.html Mangroves are remarkably tough. Most live on muddy soil, but some also grow on sand, peat, and coralContinue reading “Island Mangroves”

Shore Bird Roosts in Moreton Bay

Four main types of shore bird roosts are identifiable in Moreton Bay (Thompson, 1991): • 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; • saltContinue reading “Shore Bird Roosts in Moreton Bay”

Morning with the Mangroves at The Point

The Point at low tide is rich with mangroves. This is a protected Nature Reserve and Sanctuary as these waters have dugong,  crabs, sea turtles and many species of fish and molluscs, as well as the mangroves.  The shoreline has changed dramatically in the last 10 years. It was just mud, but now has beenContinue reading “Morning with the Mangroves at The Point”

Mangroves on Lamb Island Point

I am back on Lamb island…my home. The Point is the tip nearest  Stradbroke Island which you can see ahead. When it is low tide like it is here, it looks as if you can walk across. Between Lamb and Stradbroke Island is a channel  used by yachts and boats so it is not asContinue reading “Mangroves on Lamb Island Point”
