Nice video David, and good to see them “doing stuff” rather than just sitting still.
I went back around midday and they were still in the same location.
What was more surprising were 6 Latham’s Snipe – 1 on the fenceline mound between me and the Painteds, and 5 foraging together at the other (northern) end of the larger dam.
Also a Red-kneed Dotterel, several Black-fronted Dots, and lots of Australasian and Hoary-headed Grebes, many with young greblings (and large numbers of the usual ducks, etc).
No Plumed Whistling-Ducks at Burrows Lane dam, unfortunately

Birds are still there on their island as of Tues. morning.
I have replaced the film I have uploaded of these birds with somewhat better vision taken from the same vantage point as before.  Light was better and camera was on a decent tripod.
as place as before
