Great sighting, just checking whether you know if this is a new breeding location for the Blue-billed Duck?

Hi Matthew this is the 3rd time we have seen a pair with ducklings on this pond. The previous times being Jan 2021 & Jan 2022 both sightings on CNM. In Jan 2021 we saw 2 pairs. Now it is great to see them breeding again here. Cheers Deb & Rod
