Interesting about the number of Marnix's ducklings.  Early in September, on
Rottnest Island we saw a pair of shelducks with 14 ducklings.  Also on
Rottnest, the Ospreys were busy nesting.  We saw three active nests, also
one at The Elbow, Claremont, for anyone who knows Perth.  There were two
chicks in that nest and the parents were watchful nearby.

Also we saw avocets, ene pair with two chicks, and and a black winged
stilt, also with chicks

Interesting how these birds cope with the salt lakes
