A strangely positioned, very recently dead, wombat right at the outflow of a water drain. Just below the main bridge of Tuggeranong Parkway over the lower part of Isabella pond. Looking as though it had died in the pipe and flushed down by water. Although not much rain recently. I have photos.

Still not great on IDiing these waders. Pre White under, bobbing continuously. Again, on Isabella side now, but very wary and flying several times across pond can't get close enough for phone photo
