G'day birders,

Sorry to bore those that are tired of hearing about the Northern Shoveler at
Werribee, but this is just a quick note to let others know that it was observed
yesterday (Monday 3rd) by myself and Tom and Pauline Fletcher.  The bird was not
seen on Lake Borrie as per other observations, but on the lake immediately to
the south-west.  We watched it for at least half an hour from around 12.30 pm in
perfect conditions - what a beautiful duck!

Also 'spotted' several Freckled Ducks and Whiskered Tern, and I was happy to see
Glossy Ibis after many years of not seeing them.  Thanks to Maarten Hulzebosch
for keeping me posted on the situation at Werribee.
