This week's WBW is brought to you by the Radjah Shelduck (which is a combination of words that auto-correct seems to hate!). This is a duck that is restricted to the north and northern parts of the east of Australia. In other words it's not a bird I see on a regular basis.
These birds were taken at two location in the Northern Territory - the first four images were taken at the appropriately named Bird Billabong, and the others on the rather more famous Yellow Waters. I watched the duckling for a good 10 minutes and they did not spot preening at all!
There is no real information to be had about this birds scientific name - Tadorna radjah as it means Radjah Shelduck! The birds are about 50 cm long with a wing span close to 100cm. It also seems that they are fond of mud!
I think that I am finally to be back up to speed after at least 3 weeks of less than perfect health. Now its your turn to click the blue button and join in with WBW. SM
