Published sightings for the week ending 17 Mar 2013.

Fri 15 Mar Freckled Duck Berri Basin
At least 350 Freckled Duck, and also many Pink-eared Duck, Grey Teal and smaller numbers of Aus Shoveler and Aus Shelduck. With many more densely packed ducks around the far end of the wetland, an estimate of 500 Frecklers is probably not unreasonable.
