I did a bit of atlassing on the SE flanks of Maroon morning.  Nothing
particularly unusual, apart from a satin flycatcher seen from a lookout
[also had some interesting little yellow rock orchids].

Coming back through Beaudesert, I stopped to atlas a dam on Porridge Pot
Ck.  It had several hundred [~300-500] plumed whistling ducks round the
dam, which got me wondering, a) what is the largest ever congregation of
PWDs recorded [presumably over a thousand] and b) what is the average
flock size for PWDs [50-100?].

Regards, Laurie.
