John Boyce asks about Little Bitterns Ixobrychus minutus showing themselves at
Lake Wendouree Ballarat north west of Melbourne.  The species is not often seen
in Victoria and the Atlas of Victorian Wildlife has only 149 records of Little
Bitterns recorded for the state.  The species has been recommended for listing
as a threatened species in Victoria.

If Phil Maher or any other observers has more details I encourage them to
forward the details to the Atlas.
