A landholder on Plains Rd has just inspected his lucerne paddock and reports 56 Shelducks.  He comments "... if anything that was a conservative count and I think I may have missed up to 6, counting ducks – when heads are going up and down - is not as easy as counting cattle."


Although a hearsay report I will be logging this in the COG Atlas DB as the observer is very reliable and can definitely ID Shelduck.
