Went to Jerrabomberra wetlands. They are burning off the silt trap area. Was there a fence across Kellys swamp before? I cant remember. Well there is now.

Saw >17 double bar finches, >8 redbrow finches, 21 dusky woodswallows. 1 fantailed cuckoo. 1 dead wombat- which seemed very strange. 1 little eagle flew through the smoke. A possible brown goshawk in the distance 'quartering'. 3 male and 3 female blue billed ducks. The brightest male was aggressive towards the male bird in immature/partial male plumage. Didn't see many other ducks, although only checked one sewerage pond.
