Hi Michael
It was good to put a face to a name on Saturday during our Apex Park at
We picked up Australasian Shovellers on Saturday on the body of water to the
left off the Glenore Grove/Lowood  Road, not sure what it is called.  There
were about half a dozen or so with heaps of Wandering Whistling-Ducks.  We
scoped them up not long before dark.  I had been seeing them near Willowbank
and Boonah (both near Ipswich SEQ'ld) regularly a bit earlier this year.
We got a pair of Cotton Pigmy-Geese on the top one of those two small ponds
near the Lake Clarendon Wall.  Saw the male very clearly through the trusty
Swarovski.  They were spooked by a guy wandering out with his kayak less
than a minute after we had confirmed them and minutes before the arrival of
the Republican Monarchs.
Oh! and hearty congratulations on another fine win by the Unleaded Petrels
(back to back).
