After smoko, most of the company walked up and over the hill to the grassy flat on George Creek whilst Peter G and I quietly walked back to the lakes, I hid behind a 2 metre-high Black Wattle with camera and scope and Peter continued on around the lakes eventually "driving" the waterfowl close to me. Here are the results.

|These two images above show an adult and an immature bird. Note that the immature bird has the border between the grey head and the white cheeks going along the lower border of the eye.|
