I heard this-morning about a report on the BQ website of a Northern Shoveler
at Lake Freeman, Gatton yesterday afternoon, so I went over after breakfast
for a look.

I found about 9 pairs of Aussie Shoveler, 2 Freckled Duck, 3 pairs of Cotton
Pygmy-goose along with two full grown imms, lots of Pink-eared Duck, hordes
of Plumed Whistling-duck, Chestnut Teal, in fact 12 duck species in all as
well as Magpie Geese and Black Swans with young. There were about a dozen
Comb-crested Jacana, Glossy Ibis, herons, spoonbills, and 23 other waterbird
species, as well as White-bellied Sea-eagle, Whistling Kite,
Black-shouldered Kite, and lots more - but I couldn't find the Northern

I'll go for another look sometime soon, but if anyone does catch up with the
bird, please give me a phone call or an email - I'd love to get a
