Hi all
My Dad and I were having a quick stop into the Saltwater section of Centenary 
Lakes and got talking to a lovely lady who mentioned there had been a 
Great-billed Heron there on Tuesday along the eastern creek (between CL and The 
Lakes apartments). We wandered over that way to see on the off chance that it 
might be around again. Got sidetracked looking at a Collared Kingfisher and 
Black-necked Stork when she came and found us to tell us that she had found it 
down the other creek!
So we raced down along Saltwater Creek and there it was quietly 
standing/hunting on the bank just where the Freshwater Lake drains into 
Saltwater Creek. (viewed from the Eastern side looking west).
It was amazing how well it blended in with the surroundings and I am forever 
thankful to Anne (?) for coming to tell us about it!
Hopefully get some images on my website asap.
