At least 13 Freckled Duck on Hasties Swamp yesterday. Pink-eared Duck numbers 
are on the increase too.

Saw a Bustard with an extended neck ruff which is odd for this time of year in 
the north. Cranes often between Atherton, Malanda and Bromfield Swamp. Many 
roosting south of Ball Road which turns off Curtain Fig Road. One Grass Owl 
near this junction. My Barn Owls have three chicks this year and one has left 
the nest a little early. Could not find it this morning but no feathers either 
so hope it is now able to fly. Double-eyed Fig-Parrots in the car park at the 
fig but the fruit is almost finished.

Reports of Yellow Wagtail at Black Gully, Tinaroo but not there when I looked.
