Waterbirds at Patterson River


Some inclement weather has stopped the shutter from clicking over the last few days but I did manage to get some shots of a few of the locals at Patterson River in Victoria. This is always a good location for waterbirds who enjoy fishing in the river.

First up, a Royal Spoonbill flew in to annoy the cormorants, followed by a White Faced Heron, the resident Great Egret, and the local Black Cormorants.
