I walked around Yerabbi Ponds on the Thursday and estimated upwards of 60 Hardheads (or White-eyed Duck ) present.
They were also present in numbers on what my Gregory's labels Gungahlin Pond.
On a small piece of water south west of the Baldwin Drive, Sir William Slim roundabout
                                                            there were two adult birds and two immatures. 
Today when i walked around Lake Ginninderra I saw no Hardheads; not very many ducks at all really, but no Hardheads.
Is there an obvious reason for this ?.
There are also large numbers of Grebe (mostly Australasian, but some Hoary-Headed) on Yerrabi Pond.
I would guess 40 but i wasn't keeping track of them.
Is Yerrabi Pond deep? clear?
Different topic:
Would this be a mallard/black duck cross?
There is a white ring around its neck not obvious in the photo.
