As well as yesterday’s kookaburras, we have recently seen plenty of interesting waterbirds at Lake Claremont in Perth’s western suburbs. This seasonal lake largely dries up in summer, but is now fairly full from the winter rain. That’s a male Australian Shelduck above, and a male Australasian Shoveller below.

The females aren’t quite as colourful as the males, as you can see below. That’s the female Shoveller on the left.
