Breeding Waterbirds on the Salt Lagoon Islands, South Australia

Breeding activity on the Salt Lagoon Islands was surveyed in c. 50 visits between October 1962 and November 1979. Observations are presented on the timing, abundance and (in most cases) habitat of the breeding of 26 species of birds, with special attention to nine species of ardeiformes and four of Phalacrocorax. Results are given of a three-year survey of the breeding cycle of the Phalacrocorax species, and fish samples are described. Comments are made on the decline in breeding numbers of larger waterbirds.
