Last month, a bittern was picked up exhausted on Christmas Island and 
subsequently died. Photos are here Thanks to Lisa Preston from 
Island Explorer Holidays for the info.

Given there is likely to be some discussion about the identification of 
juvenile bitterns on Cocos, I thought it best to leave this unidentified for 
now. Any ID comments to accompany the image at the base of the report would be 
gratefully appreciated.
