The Javan Pond Heron in Darwin has been relocated by Meg O'Brien at 18:40 at a
drain on Trower Road in Brinkin about 1km NNE of the original site along Rapid

Darryel Binns, Joy Tansey and I were there at first light (06:30) this morning. 
flew down to the bank above the drain and walked down the bank to the reeds at
07:40.  We observed it eating a frog and a dragonfly.  It flushed a few times,
flying up into the trees, but would fly back down again after a few minutes.

The directions to the drain are ...  Drive along Trower Road to the final
roundabout with a sign indicating Trower Road to the left.  This is at the 
of Daribah Road.  Park along the side of Daribah Road and walk back up the north
side of Trower Road about 50 metres to the drain.  There is a 1.5 metre metal 
along the side of the path at this point.  The JPH was feeding in the drain, or

The habitat looks very good for the bird, and there is every chance that the 
could stay here for a while.
