One immature Little Bittern yesterday (3:15 pm) at Acacia Inlet, not far from Geoffrey Dabb’s purple star on the Rosalky/Dabb/Google picture.  It was much shyer than the previous one that I had observed and when it realised it was being watched stayed fairly well hidden in the rushes although it did not adopt the “you can’t see me” pose.


Earlier I also heard a call which reminded me of a Little Corella near Point C on the Rosalky/Dabb/Google picture.  After much searching (I do not have stereo hearing) I noticed that the sound was coming from a large juvenile Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike which was being fed by its parents.
