Hi everyone

On returning from east Gippsland on Friday I stopped for lunch at Lake
Guyatt, Sale wetlands [just off the highway behand the front lake] and
saw what appeared to be 2 wandering whistling ducks....together with a
number of other ducks [chestnut teal, hardheads, grey teal]. The ducks
were quite close to the picnic area and easy to identify.

Has anyone seen these birds and know of their origins?

This wetland had been drying  for two years with many snipe and crakes
at this time of the year but at the moment it has plenty of water.

The snipe have moved to the nearby drains where greenfinch and other
species are common.
