Very few ducks were seen albeit loads of paradise Shelduck and Scaup in localise locations. I even saw a M then got really excited when I saw a couple of Blue Duck on a small lake on the edge of Wanganui. However, stopping the car for closer inspection and photographs, i realised that the reason the birds had not paddle or flown away was because they were ornamental models floating on the water!!!
