The Pondcast

Searching for the Bittern

November 23, 2021

In this Pondcast we are talking all about bitterns. We talk to project manager Jacinta – who explains the project behind finding the elusive Australasian Bitterns. These shy, long-necked birds who sway with the rushes, fly south for the winter each year from the NSW rice fields. And meet siblings, Riley and Macey from Portland, who noticed a weird noise coming from the swamp at the bottom at their garden, and for the last couple of years, they’ve been actively reporting and recording them for the CMA project.
