Duck Hunting

At this time of year, it's not uncommon to see lots of baby ducklings around Wrest Point Casino.

Alas, there' s not much happening there today, so I walk on around the Esplanade, past sailing clubs, shipwrights and chandlers....

Past the modest and little known Reserve dedicated to one of Hobart's most famous exports. Perhaps Hobartians are a little embarrassed about some of his exploits ...

To the Sandy Bay Rivulet, where water testers are hard at work.....

They assure me that this is one of the most polluted creeks in Hobart.

However, the ducks don't seem to mind. Look closely -double click - and you will see lots of baby ducklings. Not bad considering that this is almost the middle of a capital city.
