The St Lawrence Wetlands Weekend is back with an action-packed agenda for the whole family and Ranger Nick is leading the celebrations on June 9-11. Check out Council’s website for more information – www.isaac.qld.gov.au/wetlandsweekend 🐸
Winter is a great time for looking at ducks because the males (drakes) are in their very brightest colours and there are many that have flown thousands of miles to enjoy our relatively mild climate that rarely freezes their wetland homes. The females (ducks) are mostly brown all year, but usually have a bright male companion to aid identification.
In Sussex there are about 30 types of wild duck seen each year which can live happily side by side with little competition for feeding because they have individual feeding techniques for different food. #wetlandsweekend#sussex#duck
