Dear all
Between 1130 and 1230 today (Sunday 27 Jan)  Lyn and I observed one maybe two Little Bitterns at Jerrabomberra wetlands. The first sighting we obseved for at least 15 mins hunting  (very successfully) along the front of the reeds to the left of the Bittern hide, where one can often see crakes.  We move on the Cygnus hide, while watching  the intermediate egret feeding a Little Bittern flew across the entire width of the expanse of water in from of us from the reeds on the right to the bed on the far left of the hide.  We also saw a little Bittern at Acacia Inlet on Saturday morning as well in the reeds close up to the Bike path crossing lights over lady Denman Drive.
