    Anas castanea Antidae I couldn't get anymore info to come up for this on the Bowerbird id so have resorted to manual id on the comments page. I puzzled over the plumage of these ducks and am proposing that they are immature male Chestnut teals. I have seen a pair nesting on the other side of the Yarra in Sweeneys Flats. So hopefully Foxy Loxy is under control there and people keep their puppies on lead at the end of Sweeneys lane.
