 A common sighting in winter are a number of black swans (Cygnus atratus) making nests on Bibra Lake. In one year a nest may be used 3 or 4 times by the same bird or several in turn.  Both sexes incubate eggs for about 39-43 days, and both care for their young.

 

  

 

The new broadwalk at Bibra Lake make it easier to view the water birds, such as this Australasian Coot with its young.
