An up-date on the CI Malayan Night Heron. It was on the Blow Holes Road before the 4WD track starts about 2-400 m each side of a red bore pipe surrounded by 4 posts banded like barbers poles (right side of road driving-in). Easy to find and photograph last Wednesday to Friday when Peter's group left. Not certainly seen since then by Peter & Carol Abbott (who leave today).

Warning. Some National Parks staff seem to be confusing this bird with Nankeen Night Heron which has been resident at the Dales since 2001.
