Australian Giant Eastern Egret (Ardea alba modesta) - Central Coast Lakes

Today I stopped at Tuggerah Lake in NSW. Just 4 hours drive north of Sydney. The lake has changed significantly since the last time I visited in 2007. In ten years the water quailty and visibility has changed significantly, and there is a large build up of seaweed where there was once a long sandy shoreline. Most noticably there is more wildlife surrounding the shores. Like this  Eastern Giant Egret.
