could anyone help me out with identifying the white bird in particular in the pics below? if possible, a confirmation of the exact duck species is welcome.

Hi Jellycakes,

The Tern is a Caspian Tern, the duck below that I believe is a male Australian Shoveler in eclipse plumage (going by the bill shape the blue in the shoulder and the orange legs). The duck to the right of the shot is a hardhead.

Cheers,

Bourke
