A Pleasant Evening By The Patterson River

I had the good fortune to choose a perfect time to visit the Patterson River with a lot of activity from the water birds that frequent the site. There must be a large number of baitfish in the river as everything was hunting and catching plenty of small fish. 

After finding a spot close to the water, the birds ignored me and went about their business. At one stage, I could have reached out and touched a pair of Little Egrets they were that close. 

As dusk approached, photography became a challenge but I was still happy with the results. Apart from the Little Egrets, the highlight had to be a pair of duelling pelicans and the late arrival of some Nankeen Night Herons.
