Lake Eyre is not always brimming with life

A full Lake Eyre is often referred to as a place of birds and new life. Whilst there is definitely pelicans, silver gulls, terns and others, on the edge of the lake there is death everywhere. One can see: fish that could not tolerate the high salt content, hundreds of birds that are not associated with wetlands such as Budgerigars and Button Quail and even mammals such as rodents, (see below).
