Also seen were Pacific Black Duck, Hardhead, Chestnut Teal, Australian Wood Duck, Blue-billed Duck and a single Australasian Shoveler (eclipse male, I think, based on the buff coloured patch behind the bill). Terrible photo but in the conditions and with the bird more than 100 metres away I was happy to record my first sighting of this species here.

There are lots of Hoary-headed Grebes on the lake and some cooperated by staying close enough to the bank to be photographed

One good thing about the low light conditions is the serendipitous abstract art shots of birds in flight
