I would like to add to Frank O'Connor's observation that  "This seems to be
a very good year for White-necked Herons near the coast.  They have been
very common in the south west of Western Australia since early May"

During the past 2 months I have seem more White-necked Herons than expected
on the Mornington Peninsula, southern Victoria, .  On a couple of occasions
they have been observed flying in flocks of 10 -20 birds.  My biggest
surprise was seeing one fly up from a rock pool on one of the Blairgowrie
ocean beaches.  Whilst, of course, White-faced Herons are commonly seen in
these areas it was may first observation of a White-necked Heron feeding
