As I watched the swans and ducks enjoying a balmy May afternoon on Lake Ginninderra, I was surprised to see a creature interrupt their play.
It was four legged and had a tail and swam in the water before coming to shore. Apparently I shrieked something like, “Look! Look! A beast! A beast in the water!” – in a courageous manner, I’m sure.
The birds were not overly disturbed by said beast but I am now puzzling over what it could possibly have been. It seemed too big to be a rat, but I can’t think what else it could be.
Any insights, Rioters?
