In the lake behind Tura Beach (NSW) I noticed what looked like a bit of a jetty. But this was not connected to the land and one end sloped down into the water. On the land nearby I noticed what appear to be something of the same design lying on the ground. This was about four metres long, made of screwed plywood. It had three white PVC pipes attached to the top in a parabolic curve. What is it?
Behind the dunes there are Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatos. There were eating Banksia "cones", much the same way people each corn on the cob: gripping the cone in one claw, they picked the seeds out with their beaks, rotating the cone as they went. The birds can also be seen on the nearby Tura Beach Country Club golf course.
