An early morning bird watch

One night they told us we'd have an early morning bird watch. They had parked the boat nosed into some reeds. At the 5am wakeup call we went up to the top and there was a raucus noise of birds in the reeds although none could be seen. As it got a bit later some birds started flying around and gradually there were more and more. White parakeets and various parrots. At several points the sky became full of flying birds.

We actually got a brief preview when we arrived the evening before -- the lights from the boat as it came in to moor disturbed the birds, and there was much fluttering and squawking until the guides persuaded the crew to turn the lights off.
