For those who may be passing Roses Lagoon on the Federal Highway between
Collector and Goulbourn I spent from 18:00 to 18:20 last evening recording
birds.  During this time i was blessed with 3 differnet flight views of
Australian Bittern.  Two  views were of single birds and one was of 2
birds..... as far as I could tell (from distance beteen origin) this
involved a total of 4 birds.  Clearly, the chances of seeing a bittern here
are very good at present.  Several times last summer I saw birds foraging
in short vegatation so with a telescope and some patience extremely good
views are possible.
