White Heron. NZ. Also called Kotuku. They breed  near Hokitika on the West Coast of the South Island. When they leave the colony for part of the year they live solitary lives. They apparently ended up in New Zealand having been blown off course from an  Australian destination.

Bill ✔️ The primitive condition of early city streets is evident in this 1861 image of Dunedin’s Princes Street. A dirt carriageway, lined by rudimentary ditches, runs along its centre. On either side are dirt and grass footpaths. While a girl and dog walk along the footpath, other pedestrians stick to the carriageway. There is no street lighting, making night-time travel a hazard.    Bill Gibson-Patmore.  (curation & caption: @BillGP). Bill✔️
