White Heron, Lake Omanu


Lake Omanu is near Foxton.  A permit is required from Fish & Game to visit the lake.  Among the other waterfowl we found a White Heron.  There were 3 Royal Spoonbill roosting in a tree, and a Bittern hiding in the reeds on a small island in the middle of the lake.  In previous years we have had up to 3 White Heron, Little Egret and Cattle Egret also on the lake.
