A cold and foggy day in Orange today. A quick lap around Lake Canobolas near 
Orange produced 2 Freckled Duck and 4 Australasian Shoveler, 4 Purple Swamphen 
and 2 Black Swans. The usual coots, musk duck and black ducks were also around 
along woth Little Black and Little Pied Cormorants.

Spring Creek reservoir, normally THE Orange site for Blue Billed and Freckled 
Ducks, Pink Eared Ducks and Shoveler has been drained so the dam wall can be 
strengthened. Most likely the Freckled Ducks and Shovelers have come to Lake 
Canobolas as an alternative. A good choice being more accessible for the 
birdos. Hopefully they may remain here until Spring Creek is refilled.
