User's notes

resting in a row in the water when we arrived, several minutes later and almost simultaneously we saw a White-bellied Sea-eagle flash by as well as the ducks and most other things on the water including Aust White Ibis and Swan rapidly fly up and off. The ducks looped around twice then flew off so that was that. Always amazing how quick it happens.
