I watched a light morph Little Eagle soar steadily higher just north of the big dam at Mulligans Flat on Sunday afternoon around 5pm. It spooked the local ducks and noisy miners.
On the shrinking dam were a pair of Australasian Grebes with a noisy trio of juveniles. The parents were busy feeding them. It seems to have been a great year for this species in Mulligans-Goorooyarroo with 4 or 5 separate pairs with young seen by me in the past month or two. There were 2 Dollarbirds present too.

While cycling around Yerrabi Pond yesterday I stopped to watch the resident male Musk Duck preening just metres from the shore below Mirrabei Drive. I could only find one other Musk Duck, a female, all the way up near the northern footbridge. Does anyone know whether this years young have moved on?
