I found a badelynge (yes I know but apparently that is what a group of ducks are called), of ducks while wandering around the Battery Point slipway the other day. I believe this a Mallard. This is an introduced species which is becoming more common around Tassie. They are commonly found in urban areas, ponds, lakes and small streams often with other birds.
The species was introduced during the 1860’s and has gradually spread throughout the Eastern States.
