We had a look at both Tip Lagoon and sewage ponds over the weekend with no luck, though there were three Aussie shelducks at Tip Lagoon.

Hi all,

A Canadian birder friend just texted me to say that he saw 1 drake NORTHERN SHOVELER at Tip Lagoon around noon today (Wed, Nov 29).

He also reports a large leopard seal showing well on the Milford Sound foreshore.
