I forgot to mention that I saw probably the same female Musk Duck on Sunday
evening but with 2 small balls of black by its side on Yerrabi Pond.
I wonder what happened to the other youngster.

Hi All

Amongst the 400 plus coot on Yerrabi Pond this morning was a female Musk
Duck with a dependant young that I would guess at about 2 days old;
certainly under a week. Can anyone "age" it for me.
