Yes, they were inspecting it last Monday and after a bit of a look at it they copulated. Maybe they will use it?

I seem to recall Chris Davey telling me some time ago that Grey Teal hadn't used the purpose-built nest boxes at Kelly's.

Today one of a pair looked at Box No 10. Ken Black reported that he had seen one at the entrance.

A single Pacific Black Duck was wrangling a brood of nine snall ducklings.

At risk of being accused of the dire curse of anthropomorphism, I assert that they were cute.
