G'day All,
Had some good fortune today,  Andrew Stafford finally saw his first
Black-backed (formerly Little) Bitterns (Ixobrychus novazelandiae) at
Sherwood Arboretum south of Brisbane.  He reckons it might be his 180th
trip to the same place in search of them!  I've finally managed to get
some reasonable images with the Leica/Coolpix 990. A very difficult
species to see usually but today they must have taken pity on us!
I've put all four pics on a web-page at with a bit of a description
hope you enjoy them,

Tom Tarrant
