Kotuku or White Heron in Porirua

 Spotted today, 1 August, a kotuku or white heron in Porirua.

 It came very close, close enough to be snapped by my cellphone camera.

We wonder what they find to eat apart from insects and other invertebrates in this man-made pond.

I've logged it on NatureWatchNZ http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/366969 and see that there have been quite a few sightings of them in Porirua harbour and the Onepoto arm.
