Little Bitterns still at Acacia Inlet

5pm this evening, two birds (based on colouration) were still present
at Acacia Inlet.  I walked around to the western side of the inlet
near the toilet block, where there is an obvious fisherman's track to
the water's edge with a bank of reads beyond.  After watching for
several minutes, a possible female LB flew across the top of the reeds
and dropped down out of side on the far side.  Two minutes later,
a darker bird, probable male LB flew in from the far right and
continued out of sight in the direction of the Glenloch interchange.
Change of guard on a nest, perhaps?

If only Australasian Bitterns were so well behaved...  (Any advice on
where to find one in the local region would be greatly appreciated.)
