I passed this message on to my brother, Chris Parslow (unfortunately I was
tied up this weekend).  Anyway, Chris was most grateful for the tip, and
spotted both musk and freckled ducks (both lifers for him).

He asked me to pass on a query -- he observed some ducks further out in the
lake, beyond the range of accurate identification with his binocs, which he
suspected might have been Blue-billed Ducks. Could any of the good folk
who've been to Lake Clarendon recently confirm?
