Sun 22 Apr Little Egret, Sooty Oystercatcher, Pied Oystercatcher Port Adelaide
A single Little Egret along the Port River, along with many Sooty and Pied Oystercatchers. A fe sightings of Bottlenose Dolphins, but we didn't go out far enough on the dolphin cruise to see any of yesterday's reported sightings. Poor photos for the egret, but a Silver Gull left in shot as a size comparison.
