Paradise Shelducklings, Reported by David Melville

Julia and I were in central Christchurch yesterday (29 August) and were surprised to see a family of 5 Paradise ducklings on the Avon River – HANZAB indicates laying in early August with incubation at 30-35 days – the ducklings were probably 5 days old so presumably laid in late July.
