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
On a small piece of water south west of the Baldwin Drive, Sir William
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?
Would this be a mallard/black duck cross?
There is a white ring around
its neck not obvious in the photo.
