This morning I saw and heard a Black Bittern at the northern end of Marlin Drive Wonga Beach. It is likely that the Black Bittern will stay and call until it takes up with a mate which could be several days.
One of the highlights in our peak birdwatching season is the arrival of Black Bitterns to nest in the fresh water areas. They arrive in late October and will be around until April.
The easiest way to see Black Bitterns is on a dawn river tour from the Daintree Village at this time of year.
