At Jerrabomberra Wetlands today an Intermediate Egret feeding in the grass in front of Cygnus Hide ate at least 5 large spiders - not a common food source for this species. A composite of crops from video frames attached. Although I realise the pictures do not show much detail, any suggestions of the spider species would be appreciated.
