Fri 5 Nov Green Pygmy goose Stradbroke Island - Brown Lake
Sighting I struggled with but I saw it very close up. Female GPG with a single fledgling in tow, sitting on a nest with a single egg. Nest on a branch deep in the reeds, when she realised I was watching she covered the egg in nest material and swam off while staying very close by. Fledgling was diving and swimming distances underwater. Both had a big white mark on their necks, Mum chestnut and green head and neck, couldnt see the body. Any suggestions appreciated
