Fri 29 Mar Freckled Duck (2) Goulds Lagoon, Granton
Eastern half of main lagoon amongst reeds. Never one to avoid a good bandwagon, wanted to check the main features (bump-like crest; flattened, red-based bill).

Freckled Duck Goulds Lagoon, Granton
Freckled Duck (3) Roosting in the main lagoon amongst reeds - about the middle lengthwise and to the eastern side. One has some red showing at the base of the beak, but dull, the other clearly doesn't, and the third kept its head ducked away the whole time. [Good confirmation of earlier sighting - Moderator]
