@WingsToWander You'll have to keep eye on that particular lagoon, I've seen probably the same musk duck there twice now. Saw it today, and on the 26th May

there have been quite a few at Wonga Wetlands. they even bred on one of the ponds last season. They look like a fuzzy log floating with the current. And suprirsingly front on they look like a platypus!
