Love is on the lake

For the last few weeks a love story has been unfolding on the Lake at the Botanic Gardens. After being by herself on the lake for some time, a Dusky Moor Hen was joined by a Pacific Black Duck. For a while, they kept their distance. However, as time passed they started to spend more and more time swimming together. Now, they are inseparable.

The attached photo shows the happy couple.
Be interesting to see how this develops, lovers or just best friends?
Thanks for that news Roger,  keep us updated.
