Three young Hottentot Teals were released into the 1st gabion pond at the Silvermine Wetlands – 2 males and a female.  The female is ringed.  1 male and the female took off like rockets into the reeds, while 1 little guy took to the pond as if he had been there all his life.  Please let me know if you see any of them, as we would obviously like to know if they are still here.  As you can see from the photos, they are quite distinctive.

Please respond via the Scenic South.
