This morning I took myself for a bike ride along Woolcara Lane and into Primrose Valley, covering parts of 4 squares in 40km. 

The highlight was seeing a pair of Australian Shelduck, on a dam visible from Woolcara Lane, accompanied by 13 fluffballs  At about 150m range I couldn't tell more about the ducklings other than they seemed able to swim well but were very small and downy.  I also saw my first Fan-tailed Cuckoo for the season, munching on something caterpillarish It found on the ground.  Also another 29 species, of the "usual suspect" category.
