Had a drake Northern shoveler this afternoon at Waituna Lagoon, Southland. Bird was with mixed duck flock (mostly Aus shovelers), and stood out like the proverbial as the attached record shot hopefully shows.
Bird was on the shoreline approx 200m West of the viewing platform. I was watching from the seaward side, having kayaked up to check out some of the islands in the lagoon.
