I had an American couple I took out last Saturday telephone to say on Monday
morning they went to Mitchell Park at 7.30am and had a Black Bittern fly
over their car as they crossed the first bridge. They went to the water's
edge and had the bird sitting in a tree calling for twenty minutes.  They
also saw two Powerful Owls in the rainforest.

They also passed on an unpleasant experience in the Capertee Valley the
previous day.  They were pulled off the road birdwatching and a local lady
with a small child stopped her car and abused them for being on the road,
abused all bird watchers for not pulling far enough off the road and blamed
birdwatchers for one of her friends nearly having a serious accident. She
kept it up for 10 minutes and would not listen to any reason.  Bad karma in
