Hi All,
The Chinese Pond Heron reported from near Broome, WA over the weekend was not 
seen this morning (Monday 31 March) during a short search by at least one 
visitor. As far as I am aware nobody else looked for it later in the day.  
Unless I hear that it is seen again I won't post another update.
