        Australasian Bittern Lunnawanna, Bruny Island
At a new years eve BBQ we were treated to 2, possibly 3 bitterns calling fairly 
constantly from 6.30 to 8.30pm. The closest was probably within 50 metres but 
in thick tea tree scrub along a creek bed. Our hosts report that they are 
regularly very noisy in the mornings. On private land.
