On a rare childless week-end, we visited Mitchell Park (Cumberland) on
Sunday between the showers.  Apart from a stunning view of an Azure
Kingfisher, there was nothing special to report except that of the circa
8 Nankeen Night-Herons we found, at least two were immatures, giving
firm evidence there has been successful breeding in the little colony.
There might have been more, but too many of the birds only presented us
with fleeting silhouettes.

P.S. I wish I knew just where it is people find the Powerful Owl there!
