Thanks for the very interesting account Bruce, possibly no surprise that I always enjoy these kinds of posts comparing notes on what is present or absence on local patches.
Like others I noted that on Saturday, particularly early, birds were very quiet.  I put it down to the cold but dry conditions, but that's pure speculation.
Also interesting was that I didn't find a Wood Duck over the entire weekend.  Usually they are scattered over the several local dams.  My daughter claimed that they were all in Yarralumla Bay where she was participating in a triathlon, but now I know at least some were at Point Hut pond.
