To respond to - it isn't really an answer - Mark's question first where the birds go to when not at either of the dams around Trucking Yard Lane or the sewage works is a great mystery. A couple of years ago they were seen to fly from the dam off Hoskinstown Rd (which I call Bungendore Meadow dam after the appalling 'development' on the opposite side of the road) and this year I have seen them make the opposite trip.
They have been seen to fly into the sewage works from the West on one occasion.
Steve's observation is the first to mention them heading off towards Bungendore. I have a feeling that the birds are more skittish this year than in the past, and they have been spending time in the water this year unlike the past, and HANZAB notes this as unusual and a threat response.
