User's notes

Lots of ducks on this dam mainly Grey Teal and Pacific Black Duck (some with larger ducklings) and Chestnut Teal. But got this lone Pink Eared Duck which was very hard to see.

Interesting. They were on the Bega lagoons in large numbers during the drought over the last couple of years, but I think they must have all headed back out west now.
