White-Faced Heron

July 07, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I spent a fascinating hour or more watching and photographing this White-Faced Heron fishing for immature yabbies in the Hacking River, Royal National Park. He would stir the river bed then quickly pounce. He was quite comfortable with my presence as long as I stayed outside of roughly a 6 metre boundary. The second shot shows his reaction when I crossed this boundary. It was well worth the scramble down from Lady Carrington Drive to the river bank, a very peaceful morning.
