The Russell catchment’s coastline provides sanctuary for Great-Billed Heron, a wading bird found along stunningly beautiful riverbanks and lagoons of the Russell River and its tributaries. Most often, we only catch a glimpse as this very reclusive bird takes flight upon hearing our arrival. Sometimes though, we’re lucky enough to see it perched above the water on an overhanging tree.
Rich biodiversity worth conserving
