Hi Me again.I just thought you might be interested in knowing something about "Duck Ponds".I have Mannings "Names of south australian places" and found the following:-
"The name of a creek which flows near Moculta. It appers on a survey map of 1842. In the early days wild ducks were numerous and wheat, whicxh had been hand broadcasted, could not be left uncovered overnight. William Shannon, an early settler, called his home 'Duck Ponds'. There is another 'Duck Ponds' 8 ks. west of Port Lincoln.
