We don't get many Blue-billed Ducks up this way, but there have been two males 
and two females at Lake Galletly on the UQ Gatton campus for a while now.

When I was there on Thursday, I saw one good male and a female, but I'm a bit 
unsure about another bird I saw.

I've put some photos at and would value 
hearing from those who are more familiar with Blue-billed Ducks than I am, 
particularly about the bird in photos numbered 3 to 7.

To see a Blue-billed Duck in the Lockyer Valley is an infrequent event, I'm not 
aware of any local breeding records in the last 30 years.

All observations will be gratefully received.
