Comments:
Had a very long stroll, extending my usual route onto the railway lines to get a look at the smaller lagoon and the bay immediately nearby. The extended route is probably why I managed to find four species I'd never knowingly seen at Gould's before!
Species
35 species (+4 other taxa) total

Domestic goose sp. (Domestic type)

The white Goose of Goulds still has it's new friend. Both posed very nicely for photos!

As expected, the Freckles are all present and correct. Looking as firmly established as ever. Two of them posed particularly nicely beside the path!

Gray x Chestnut Teal (hybrid)

Clearly observed a male Chestnut and female Grey, very obviously a pair, with their two ducklings. I've never seen such clear hybrid birds between the two before! Will be very interested to see the ducklings once they acquire adult plumage!

My first for the area! Delighted to see them bobbing around among a huge raft of coots!

Including two that followed me along the railway tracks... given their calls and behaviour, I believe a nest must be nearby!
