Sun 31 Mar Hoary-headed Grebe Jahnke's Lagoon
One bird swimming close to the near-road margin of the lagoon, seen at ~2:30pm. Possibly a couple more further out but weather was turning bad and we didn't stick around long. Lots of good birds on the lagoon this time in good numbers.

Freckled Duck (4) Pechey's Lagoon, Lower Tenthill, s/w of Gatton
Part of a day's birding in the Lockyer Valley with Peter Ryan. After seeing the single Freckled Duck at Karrasch we kept going on to Pechey's where we saw 4 more individuals. Birds were very close and made for great viewing. The lagoon was very full of water and teeming with birdlife.
