A single adult, presumably female with a very young chick found in a landlocked 
lagoon near the Wenlock River on 18 July 2010.  They were resting along the 
for a while then ventured into the water where they began feeding on the lilly 
flowers.  I have come across SWD in the past with chicks, but a few years ago 
and the deatils are now sketchy.  The birding atlas I have doesn't show any 
breeding records.  Excellent photos were taken.
