Hi Edwin,

I'm hoping to go down after I finish work today, have spotted the location of the pond on google maps, but just want to find out how it is that you actually get into the golf course and to the pond? Is it ok to just park your car and wander in?

Thanks in advance
Troy Mutton

David Mitford has advised me that he saw a male Little Bittern at about
6 pm this evening at the East Lakes Golf Course in Sydney. It was at the
southern end of the pond closest to Martin and Donaldson Streets
Pagewood. It was seen on the reed bed edge visible from the causeway
here. This is the same pond where the Yellow Wagtail was seen a few
years ago and where these and Brown Bitterns have also turned up.

Though Little Bitterns probably turn up in these places each year, there
appears to be a coincidence that they are more often seen during the
drought years in Sydney and I would not be surprised if a few more of
these stunning birds will be reported over the next few months.
