In rely to Laurie, I visited Lake Clarendon last Sunday.  Again, nothing
that remotely resembled Freckled Ducks.   The "dam" with the swans is a
natural swamp (Janhke's Swamp) and when the seasons allow, is often the
source of many fabulous sightings.  Last Sunday I saw three Blue Billed
Ducks (1 male, 2 females) at Janhke's Swamp as well as one of the white
swans.  Although the swans have been there for a while, I have not heard
anyone refer to them as albinos as they appear to have dark eyes.  Perhaps
someone will have a good enough view to positively identify eye colour in
the near future.

With regards to King Parrots in Sydney, my daughter lives in Baulkham Hills
and I can assure you that King Parrots are extremely common in their area.
