Freckled visitors

Recently in Ballarat we have been fortunate to have Freckled Ducks (Striconetta naevosa) on Lake Wendouree . Carol took this photo of one on Thursday when there were  about 50 in the willows near the Olympic Rings. The Freckled Duck is listed as a threatened species under Victoria’s Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988.
