Pied Heron picks up pasture pool prey

Making the most of latest heavy rainfall, Pied Heron (Egretta picata) ventures from typical wetland habitat to pick up prey along edge of pasture pool near Forrest Beach east of Ingham today.





Bit too far across the water but caught some distant flight action.
