Hello Birding Aus subscribers,
A colleague of mine found this Yellow Bittern struggling to stay afloat at the 
re-fuelling boy in open waters north of Smith Point, Christmas Island last 
night (02/03/14) during a late afternoon sunset cruise. It would appear that 
the bird did not quite make it to land without the aided help of the dive boat. 
Is it unusual to find TWO Yellow Bitterns within a two week period? are they a 
common species within the area as my research does not seem to suggest or is 
there something strange going on out there? 
Here is a link to some images:
Many thanks,
Brendon Levot.
