I am very concerned about the lone Egyptian Goose that has spent all day and most of the night either on shore or in the water. Is is waiting for it's mate, or greiving a loss, or ill?

The Egyptian Goose breeding season is generally in the spring or at the end of the dry season, but breeding can take place anywhere between late July and early March depending upon their location. They reach breedable age at around 2 and are monogomous.
We had a good look at that Goose in the morning light when Zoomie was at work. I saw him fly off when the Lapwings came in. He (she?) squaked and flew quite healthily.
May have just been a loner or youngster who hasn't yet found a mate. I don't know when their roosting season is--I suspect it has passed since SA is entering Winter now.
