Posted in Categories: Birds -  Wild -  

I can't get over these guys. When I first glimpsed one of these tiny ducks on Tomato Lake I thought my eyes were playing tricks and its bill could not possibly be so blue - but indeed they are. Listed as Near-threatened in Australia, their numbers are estimated at just 5000 in the West and a further 10,000 in Eastern Australia. Their presence in healthy numbers at Tomato Lake is testimony to the importance of rehabilitating these remnant areas.
