Following a tip off today I went to a swamp on the Plain and saw Masked Lapwing with 4 chicks and Australian Shelduck with 14 chicks.

The mother is top left and a few of the ducklings didn't fit in the photo.  Mum was honking anxiously so I didn't want to disturb them too much.

On Plains Rd there are 3 active Raven's nests (I assume Little Raven) and I also saw 3 very small Australian Wood Ducks (link to keep file size down).
