Alastair Smith and I saw a male Little Bittern about 0730 this morning at the point just west of Acacia Inlet. It was in reeds about 30-40 metres west of the old raised boat ramp at the edge of the lake. After initially getting brief flight views we eventually saw it well by climbing onto a low branch of a big eucalypt and looking down into the reed beds. The bittern appeared after 15 minutes, clambering high into the reeds, where it stayed for a few minutes, then flew off further west, dropping back into the reeds after 50 metres or so.
Also in the area 10+ Dusky Wood-swallows, 50+ Red-rumps, Little Grassbirds, a couple of Latham's Snipe.
