Rare sight of Bit­terns

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

Lake Cullen near Kerang is one of Aus­tralia’s hot spots for na­tive birds.

This rep­u­ta­tion has been en­hanced fur­ther in re­cent times with at least 16 Aus­tralasian Bit­terns spot­ted in a flock tak­ing flight. This is very un­usual for this time of year as they do not mate un­til Spring.

Bit­terns are a rarely seen bird and a flock of more than five is re­garded as sig­nif­i­cant.
