Knob-billed Duck (Sarkidiornis melanotos).
Found in tropical wetlands in sub-Saharan Africa,Madagascar and south Asia from Pakistan to Laos and extreme southern China. It also occurs in continental South America south to the Paraguay River region in eastern Paraguay, south-eastern Brazil and the extreme northeast of Argentina, and as a vagrant on Trinidad.
Now you know where to find it, how would you like a knob like that on top of you lip?

Must be bloody awkward having that get in the way….
Now for a little humour… an email I received titled “1960 hits renamed for present day US” not sure if I should laugh or cry….
Some of the artists from the 60’s are revising their hits, with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers. Who can remember doing the "Limbo" as if it were yesterday!
Here they are; –
Bobby Darin’s — “Splish, Splash, I was having a Flash!” (Hot flush)
Herman’s Hermits — “Mrs Brown you’ve got a lovely walker”
The Bee Gees — “How can you mend a broken hip”
Roberta Flack — “The first time ever I forgot your face”
Johnny Nash — “I can’t see clearly now”
Paul Simon — “50 ways to lose your liver”
The Commodores — “Once twice three times to the bathroom”
Procal Harem — “A whiter shade of white”
Leo Sayer — “You make me feel like napping”
The Temptations — “Papa’s got a kidney stone”
Abba — “Denture Queen”
Tony Orlando — “Knock three times on the ceiling if you hear me fall”
Helen Reddy — “I’m a woman; hear me snore”
Leslie Gore — “It’s my procedure and I’ll cry if I want to”
Willy Nelson — “On the commode again”
Now I don’t expect all of you to recognise these songs, you all being so young, but there might just be one or two of you out there that will. Those who don’t know the original names can ask and I will tell you…. but come on don’t be pretending….
