While chasing Kingfishers late today I came across this beautiful White-faced Heron Egretta novaehollandiae, perched beside the drying Loddon near the Panmure Street crossing. It allowed me to approach quite close, probably couldn’t be bothered moving in the heat. The river is drying out at an alarming rate – it’s sad to see it reduced to a series of disconnected pools. The pool just below this heron is home to some large carp, which I expect will expire when it dries completely in a week or two. I did manage to get some fleeting views of a Sacred Kingfisher – click.
