Some time ago I sent to the chatline this assortment from Gungahlin Pond  -  all snapped in the one group.  LBG has similar, although not quite such a range.  The centre left bird is possibly the chap in question.

Seen yesterday afternoon at the northern end of Lake Tuggeranong; solitary large duck - considerably bigger than Wood or Pacific Black - mostly black with conspicuous white breast.  We have also seen it on occasion at the Tuggeranong Park 'beach' with other fowl - and no it isn't a swan.

Any ideas?
