We've enjoyed several picnics beside Ballarat's Lake Wendouree and it seems we always sit at the same table.
That realisation prompted us to circumnavigate the lake (by car) this time - only to arrive at our usual table, just as cars stopped in both directions so two juvenile swans could be escorted to the waterfront!
There were many birds bobbing around on the water. Black swans, coots, cormorants and ducks - including the very odd musk duck! I wasn't sure what was swimming in the water but Vaughan pointed out that it was right way up and not upside-down as I first thought! I did try for some photos but it wasn't greatly co-operative. You can see some footage here and information here.
