Lake Lorne has to be about the most accessible place for seeing Freckled Duck 
in this state.  There have been 50 or more FD here for some months.  Last 
Monday I could only find a handful, but didn't search more than about 1/3 of 
the lake.

There are usually plenty of different duck species at this spot, and I wasn't 

(sorry, not in order)
Freckled Duck
Chestnut Teal
Grey Teal
Pink-eared Duck
Blue-billed Duck
Aust Shoveler

also plenty of Coot, DMoorhen and PSwamphen, HH Grebe, and lots of SN/AW Ibis.

Couldn't find any spoonbills, Musk Duck or Hardheads on this visit.  Another 
nice sighting was a Swamp Harrier sitting on the shore and eating something 
substantial - kept it busy for 20 minutes or more.  It's yellow legs were very 
bright in the sun!
