I visited Mallacoota Water Treatment Plant this afternoon and while numbers
and diversity of waterbirds are not back to those evident a year ago they
are a lot better than in October.  Many Chestnut Teal (and lesser nubers of
Grey Teal).  72 Pacific Black Duck including 7 recently fledged; 19 Black
Swans including 6 cygnets.  The first Hardhead (2) I have seen for several
months and the first Hoary-headed Grebes (6) here for a while.  Also 1
female Musk Duck.
