White-necked Heron visits after the rain 03/11/12

In the last week Spring has certainly proved that is is "any kind of weather" time.  We have had very hot dry temperatures during some days over 30 degrees and then chilly cold mornings and evenings, just to confuse us all.  This week saw the very much needed arrival of rain... 35ml at Jarowair, filling the rainwater tanks, pockets of water in the dry Cooby Creek and about half filling the Dam.

Yesterday our daughter spotted this White-necked Heron visiting the "small dam/waterhole" at the top of our property.  I was able to take a few photos of it from across the eastern side of the creek bed to avoid scaring it away.  This is only the second time we have seen a White-necked heron at Jarowair, the last time was also at the same little waterhole.

This week has also seen the return of the Sacred Kingfishers... much to the Nosiy Miners disgust!
