Freckled Ducks at Lake Lorne

It has been more than 2 months since I was out birding, so when I had to visit Drysdale this afternoon, I took the chance to stop at Lake Lorne on the way back to check on the Freckled Ducks that have taken up residence there. Sure enough, there were several small flocks at various points around the lake shore. These ducks have been there long enough now that they are starting to get used to people walking around the lake so I was able to get close enough for some portrait shots of these beautiful birds

This male was so relaxed, he was willing to share his roost with a Eurasian Coot.

Apologies for the inconvenience but I have had to turn on word verification to avoid spam (I was getting 10-20 a week)
