I have not been able to get down to the Cooks River for quite a while, until yesterday when I was lucky to spot this Nankeen night heron just outside his usual territory.  If I am correct about this being the  same bird, he is a voracious eater. I have sat watching him scoop up small fish with his beak and down them in one swallow only to do this again and again.  I moved on after watching about 30 fish get swallowed and no sign of letting up.  We are so lucky to have these birds living on the river.  

 

Merry Christmas – Happy Holidays.  I hope you are having a lovely day today whatever you are doing.  I will be back to posting soon, hopefully before the new year.  Thanks for your patience.  Jacqueline 🙂
