There has been a Great Egret in residence in the little wetlands at the northern end of Eddison Park, Woden, all through the winter.

I spotted it a few months ago and every time I walk past it is still there. It seems to patrol the banks of the pond and be constantly catching little fish.

There is also a Little Pied Cormorant that is always there, and in fact as been there for several years, except when the pond was dry and then being remodelled. Sometimes there is a Little Black Cormorant too, but once I saw the LPC chasing away the LBC.
