Around 25 teal were mostly hiding quietly around the northern inlet to the main pool. 4 mallards - 1 female, 2 males, and one farmyard feral were either on or around the island. 3 shovelers were sighted: 1female alomst directly infront of the hide, 1male/1female at the southern outlet of the pool. One coot was sight and a second reported around a clump of willow on flooded groundon the southeast of the main pool; a third was on flooded groud on the north east of the main pool. 4 common snipe were well hidden in bankside vegetation on the northern edge of the main pool.
