There's been a Black-tailed Godwit (now in its second week) and every time I've seen it, always hunkered down on the middle island... Thanks to a Sparrowhawk flushing the Lapwing flock, it took off with them, still distant but much better views!

Venus Pool - Black-tailed Godwit
The Great White Egret is now becoming almost daily in appearance, amongst another throng of Cormorants - counted 61 present today (after 67 present on Christmas eve)

Venus Pool - Great White Egret
Another visit by presumably the same Great White Egret seen during the past couple of months and today in less than favourable light! A familiar pattern of behaviour with the local Heron...
Hmm looks quiet today, a few gulls and ducks?
Nope! Here comes the less than welcoming Heron!
Repeat several times...
Maybe I'll try again tomorrow?

Venus Pool - hungry Cormorant
It never fails to amaze me how 'fish eating' birds can pull off the impossible and swallow outrageous specimens! Like this Common Carp being casually tossed to it's doom by a Cormorant on Christmas eve at Venus Pool!
It's all a matter of stifling any 'fight' and then aligning the catch....
