Or indeed, flocks.


I saw 32 Plumed Whistling Ducks at Kellys Swamp on 6 January 2012.  I’m sure the database will have further records.

Not to forget the occasional individual Plumed Whistling-duck at Jerrabomberra Wetlands.

I have in the past seen Plumed Whistling ducks at the Sewage Works,  at the dam in the paddock on Ellendon St, as well as in a paddock on the highway approaching Bungendore (opposite side of road from Trucking Yard Lane)

On Tuesday (mid-morning) at Trucking Yard Lane there were 32 Australian shelduck and 34 Plumed whistling duck (+ usual suspects). 2 days later (10 am this morning) shelducks numbered 72 and whistling duck were 26. Combined with Jean's observations on Sunday (3 and c 21)  previously observed short-term fluctuations in numbers are confirmed. Like Martin Butterfield I have never seen whistling duck on any other local water body, but shelduck can be in many local paddocks and the sewage works.

Trucking Yard Lane, about 21 Plumed Whistling Duck, lots of Grey Teal, Hundreds of Galah and Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, and 3 Australian Shellduck.


At the sewerage works, quite a few beautiful Shoveler and Grey Teal, 3 Australasian Grebe and Australasian Coot.
