Nankeen Night Heron Jerusalem Whanganui river.

Postby sjacques » Fri Dec 20, 2019 3:26 pm

Lucked in with NNHeron today at Jerusalem on the Whanganui river. Arrived just as the pouring rain was easing. After half an hour or so, approx 1145, this cracking adult flew out of a tree and had a poke around in the roadside puddles. Watched for about five minutes before flushed by a car. Circled the river, then alighted in a willow where it was virtually invisible.

Cheers,
Sean.
