I received a report tonight (29/12) from Marcus Singor that the Freckled Ducks at Maurice Hamer Park at Herdsman Lake have now increased to between 95 and 120.

How do they all know to turn up there in one place? There have only been up to 3 there over summer the past few years? Bigger numbers (30+) have tended to go to Lake Carine in previous years but this may be dry by now. Why don't they spread themselves over all the other wetlands (e.g. Lake Joondalup, Bayswater Bird Sanctuary, Bibra Lake, Kogolup Lake, Lake Monger, Booragoon Lake, etc)?
