Author's notes

There are still eight ducklings, which is fantastic. As far as i know this is the first time they have bred in this location, and only the second time in Canberra. They were easier to count from a different angle, but i did not manage to get a photo there.

I believe the previous breeding occurred at Mulligans Flat large dam (when it was full).
