Black Bittern

Yesterday I saw the first Black Bittern of the season taking off from 'Turtle Pool' in our wetlands-dam. Unfortunately I didn't have the camera with me so I have 'borrowed' this image from the Australian Bird Image Database (www.aviceda.org/abid/).

They have nested here for the past several years so it's lovely to see the first one back yet again!
