Default Pacific Black Ducks

A pair of Pacific Black Ducks enjoying the morning sun at Mother of Ducks Lagoon last weekend.

Actually the little mound they were resting on in #1 is right beside one of the golf course tee-ing off spots (not a golfer so I apologise if that's not how to describe it). The Guyra golf course is built into the fore-shore of the lagoon.

Cheers

Thanks saly. Yes, a really 'olde worlde' name and the reason for it is obvious in a good wet season - which we have been experiencing since last August after the best part of 10 years' drought. The lagoon is in a silted volcano crater which has a 14 km circumference (extinct I'm pleased to say).

Cheers

Bernice
