Date: Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Location: Lobethal Country Park lower pond.

Blue-billed Duck (Oxyura australis) (1) Six ducks which more interested in 
social activity with each other than feeding and they would occasionally 
disappear in the hollow green tubular reeds (I wish I was a botanist AND an 
ornithologist at times?) and then re-appear. I have visited this lake many 
times over the years but I think this is my first sighting of this species?

Please note that on re-reading my submission, it may be assumed that I'd never 
seen this species however this is only the case for the Country Park.
