For reasons which are irrelevant to others, I spent a lot of the first
week of October moving round between Geelong and Ballarat.
I was impressed by the large number of White-necked Herons seen in the
country south of Ballarat. They seemed more numerous than White-faced
Herons. We seldom see them these days in the Heidelberg area though they
used to be regular winter visitors.
Likewise, almost every small dam seemed to have one or two Yellow-billed
Spoonbills. This was particularly noticeable along the Highway between
Ballarat and Pike's Creek reservoir.
