> Hi All,
> This morning  (Sat 29 March 2008) Rob Berry and Gail D'Alton found a Chinese 
> Pond Heron at a freshwater wetland some 20 km out of Broome, north-west 
> Western Australia. It is in partial breeding plumage and I understand there 
> is a good photographic record. The bird has since been seen by Chris Hassell, 
> Adrian Boyle and Broome Bird Observatory staff. Any additional news will be 
> posted when it comes to hand.
> This is the first mainland record of Chinese Pond Heron and follows on from 
> one on Christmas Island earlier this month and one on Cocos Keeling Islands 
> in May 2006. In March 2007 Australia's first Javan Pond Heron was found in 
> Darwin. Autumn/late Wet Season is clearly a good time for pond herons in 
> Australia!
> Cheers,
