The Blue-billed Ducks have been regulars at the sewerage ponds for several years and appear to breed there and are a main reason for going there. I don't know of any other site in the ACT where they are resident.

Hello all,
We observed a Little Eagle and a Swamp Harrier over the sewage ponds between 6.00pm and 7.00pm today.  Also observed 5 Blue-billed Ducks on the sewage ponds.
I have not heard any mention of Blue-billed Ducks in the ACT recently.  Are they unusual?  Should I be filling out an observation form for them and/or the raptors?
