New Year Day 1

First day of 2013 and I found some time late this afternoon to visit Lake Lorne in Drysdale to see if I could photograph the Freckled Ducks that had been there for the last few weeks. Despite it being a warm and sunny day, the strong southerly winds meant that most of the Freckled Ducks were sheltering under the trees around the islands in the middle of the lake so they could be seen at a distance but not great for photography. There were, however, a few more common birds to be seen on and near the water's edge:

Australian Magpie (juvenile), Lake Lorne
Australian Wood Duck, Lake Lorne 
Black-winged Stilt, Lake Lorne
Crested Pigeon, Lake Lorne
Grey Teal, Lake Lorne
Australian Pelican, Lake Lorne
