Australasian Bittern sighted today at 1235 at a dam at my community at Stony 
Chute (within 500m of  28º 35’ 19”  S - 153º 08’ 16”  E).  I was passing over 
the dam wall on the tractor when it flushed.  It flew from exactly the same 
position (close to the causeway in reeds and long grass) to exactly the same 
perch (log in full view protruding from far bank about 25m away) as my one and 
only previous - and first - sighting of this bird in Feb 09, when I was on foot 
with binos.  Interesting... same individual perhaps?
