Of course we had to contend with ski boats and Sea-Doos roaring up and down the river all weekend, but even worse than that, we had about 5000 Corellas camped with us. They are noisy, destructive individuals. They love nipping the new shoots off the river gums and dropping them on whatever is below. Our car and caravan was buried under all this Corella Trash and worse. A daily chore was to remove the Corella Shit off the car and caravan.
The Murray River bank here is quite high so we had a commanding view along the river.
Every type of water craft was on the river this weekend.
At 4:30 pm each afternoon it was drinking time for the Corellas. Fallen river gums made ideal perches for this afternoon routine. This was also my signal to open a stubby of beer.
Look out when something disturbs the flock. All the Corellas take-off en masse careening in all directions with their raucous screeching and droppings raining down on everything below them.
There are several River Gums defying gravity along the outside bend of the river that have been undermined by the current. Surely the River Gums will drop into the river soon!
