Together with Bob & Colleen Carnes, Fay and I were at Nathan Road last
Sunday where we observed 50+ Grey Teal (Anas gracilis).  One was so pale it
was only a few shades darker than white.  Don't have any previous record of
such a specimen.  Anyone else come across an almost white Grey Teal?


PS Also saw a Yellow-billed Spoonbill, rather unusual for Redcliffe.
