I've just been speaking with Judy Terracall, the woman who lives in Wonga
Beach, FNQ, next to the pond on which the Spotted Whistling Ducks spent much
of their time through September, October and November last year. (They also
spent considerable time on her back-yard pond.) She told me that they left
for a couple of weeks but then returned in considerably greater numbers
(>50) for some weeks. She last saw them on 8 December.

Does anyone know where they might have gone? A big flock like that should
have been seen somewhere.


PS It was disappointing to hear that some visitors behaved less well than
might be hoped and expected, particularly a well-known bird photographer who
trespassed on her property to get shots (as previously reported by Dell
Richards - I think).
