    The lakes of Kerang, (not sure if this is the correct spelling) Australia.

    Full titles read: "HALF A MILLION BIRDS - We had to go to Australia for this picture - and if you don't believe the number, why, just count them yourself - !"

    Thousands of Strawnecked Ibis gather around the lakes. Several shots of the birds in flight and perched in large trees. Good M/S's of the birds in a tree. Nice M/S's of young Ibis breaking out of their eggs. The Ibis's nest are located in the reeds and the undergrowth. L/S of the birds flying in the air sensing danger. L/S of a tiger snake swimming towards the nests. The narrator says "Where's that gun ?" and with a bang someone off camera shoots the snake.
