Fri 20 Sep Rufous Night-Heron Prince Alfred College
Once again Night-Heron (6) feeding on front oval of school at night. Where do these birds roost during the day? The mangroves at Barker Inlet, a good 15km away? Or along the River Torrens? Two fruit bats were flying around then settled into fig trees
