A friend reckoned that one of the Hoskinstown Banded Lapwings had been sitting in the same spot for a couple of days, leading him to believe it was brooding.  So we went round this morning and eventually found a pair of birds at the base of the dam about 200m away from the possible nest site.  By the time we had the telescope on the area, hoping to see fuzz balls, they had vanished.

On to Burrows Lane Bungendore where we found 27 Plumed Whistling Ducks on the usual - this year - dam.
