I visited Cattai Creek at Newmans Road, near the Hawkesbury River, on Monday
12th.  On the road opposite Newmans, past the Alpaca Farm, I followed the
creek to where it opens up to a lovely waterway.  A heron type bird flew
past, and I managed to get 3 pictures as it went past.  I thought it could
be a Bittern, or at worst a Mangrove Heron --  The pictures confirmed a
Black Bittern.  It landed in the thickets near the creek, but I could not
find it again.
