Sat 25 May White-necked Heron Eaglehawk Neck on the Tasman Peninsula
2 White-necked Herons on private dam. They both took to the air when spotted. Only had time for a fleeting look at them. Have never seen these birds here before, in 40 years.

Fri 24 May Freckled Duck, Australasian Shoveler Goulds Lagoon, Granton
Cloudy at times. Strong northwesterley wind had most of the ducks sheltering on the western side of the lagoon giving some good photo opportunities. Freckled Duck (9) 9 in a group on the water and possibly one or two more roosting in the southwesterly corner. Australasian Shoveler (70) at least with a count on the water. Others roosting on the shore.
