Monday, June 22, 2020 to Sunday, June 28, 2020:

Area: SA

Date: Monday, June 15, 2020

Grey Teal (Anas gracilis) (12) There were a couple of waterholes in Barrananna

Dead trees away from the creek lines and dead roos everywhere were abundant.
Cruising in one of the waterholes was a large family of grey teal, mum, dad and 
10 ducklings. I am sure the ducklings were too small to have flown in, so 
likely they had hatched in the gorge. It was a delightful and very unexpected
