A few more than 400 this morning.  193 Coots, 111 Hardhead, 105 Australian Wood Duck and 26 Pacific Black Ducks.  Those numbers are probably overprecise as the birds kept moving around and/or diving.  I think I got to 4 Great Crested Grebes but only 2 Pied Cormorants (actively feeding).

Had a quick walk from Blundells Cottage to near the Carillon, at least 400 birds on the water, mainly Coots and Wood Ducks but also 40+ Hardheads and 3 Great Crested Grebes.


4 Pied Cormorants sitting (with other cormorants) on the shore of one of the small islands near Aspen Island. Also a couple of Superb Parrots around.
