For those of you who have a soft spot for this place here is much of what I saw 
this morning:
269 Pink-eared Duck
28 Freckled Duck
500+ Plumed Whistle duck
12 Wandering    “
12 Hardhead Duck
4 Pacific Black Duck
18 Grey Teal
~ 50 Coot
6 Royal Spoonbill
6 Black-winged Stilt
2 Intermediate Egret
1 Great            “
3 Red-kneed Dotterel
6 Glossy Ibis
1 Pelican
2 Darter
3 Little Black Cormorant

The numbers of Pink-eared and Freckled Duck are surprisingly high and the Black 
Ducks low. There were two Lathams Snipe there two days ago a rail/crake of some 
kind called once from the long grass near the mud but I could not recognize it.
