    The chase is on

    Out on the mud was a Greenshank being chased by a White-faced Heron. I don't really know what that was all about. The was the first Greenshank I'd seen in Australia, but not a Lifer of course, as they do breed up here in Scotland. I guess he would be migrating back north soon.
