Bittern, Spoonbills and SIPO Pukehina

Postby fras444 » Sat May 05, 2018 8:39 pm

Out with Dad for opening morning onthe main canal. Saw some huge flocks of SIPO 100+, a small flock of 10 Spoonbills circling us for most of the evening and first thing this morning before the shots... Saw six Bitterns fly past within a 6 minute interval.... Very interesting behaviour.... I've observed this over the last couple of seasons
