Detoured via Leeton on a trip to Deniliquin this weekend, hoping to spend a few hours Saturday afternoon at Fivebough - but it rained almost constantly from about 3pm till dark.  So went out early this morning before getting back on the road, and saw no less than 4 Australasian Bitterns - 3 flushed from close by as I walked the paths, and another flew over.  The rain had made the track very muddy, and water level in the permanent wetland very high, but still managed quite a few other species as well. Heaps of egrets - 20 in view at one stage, a couple of hunting swamp harriers, plenty of black-winged stilts and red-necked avocets, big flock of zebra finches, some black-tailed native hens, an adult and a juvenile black-shouldered kite...
