On 28 March I saw a Black Swan sitting on a nest at Isabella Pond. It's mate 
was busy collecting reeds (to add to the nest?). I understand Black Swans nest 
at any time when conditions are favourable.

Also I saw an Australasian Grebe in breeding plumage at Isabella Pond. Not sure 
if this is typical for Canberra. Morcombe says breeding varies with climate and 
season in Australia.
