At 7.40 pm yesterday, Sunday 10.10.10, whilst standing on the viewing platform outside the fence adjacent the hide at the Edithvale Wetlands, SE of Melbourne, David Stabb saw a Little Bittern fly low across the water from a patch of ribbon rush at the eastern end of the near island to the phragmatis clump beside the hide (left to right). He saw the shape well but not the plumage in the fading light. He waited till well after dark but didn't see it again and did not hear it call. Such movement at dusk is typical of the species. Please note that due to safety concerns regarding the structure of the hide, it will not be open in the foreseeable future.
