Hi there

Farrarmere dam in Benoni and its feeder stream through Atlasville are delivering some good birds at the moment. A bit of wading, fly-rod in hand, in the reedbeds on Saturday turned up Little Bittern in the reeds not 2m away from me.

Surprisingly the bird was not too flustered and perched for quite a while before flying to a small patch of reeds in deeper water. Also saw Night Heron, Squacco, Purple, Black-Headed Herons as well as Little and Cattle Egret within a couple of minutes in the same proximity.
