At lunchtime today at Lake Tuggeranong all the usuals were out and about. Interesting to see roosting in the willow trees near the Town Beach area were a White-faced Heron, a Great Egret and 8 Little Corellas.
There was also a group of what appeared to be 2 adult and 4 near-adult domestic ducks. I don't know if anyone else has seen them there before, but we have never noticed them on past visits to the lake. They may be fly-ins or possibly someone has released them there. They were not associating with or near any of the "wild" ducks - although there were only a few Black Ducks about at the time. And they certainly weren't at all bothered by the near proximity of people.
