This isn't about birds, but they have a bill and lay eggs, so close enough. 

I have received a couple of notices about Platypus Watch an initiative to record information about this species. should have the details.  I have also established that they are interested in incidental sightings being reported to m("","platypus.apc");" target="_blank">, giving whatever info you can provide (but lat longs, date and time and the name of the watercourse in which they are frolicing seem rather basic). 

I have reported the one the Weds Walkers saw near Kambah Pool last month and the one seen in the Queanbeyan River on a Field trip to Yanununbeyan NR/NP/CA in 2007 and recall folk seeing one off the footbridge in Jerrabombera - but didn't personally see that one so have not done anything about it.
