Preening heron peers down
Standing in a mangrove just above fishers' heads at busy Dungeness boat ramp, Striated Heron (
) pauses in preen while waiting in vain for unwanted fish.
Bird moved about a lot, but always stayed part-hidden.
Till it came time to fly.
Also prominent at the ramp, Great Crested Terns (
) working the Herbert River-Hinchenbrook Channel outflow.
Light overcast no help for flight images.
