Bittern Shows Again

Today I visited, Hayle, Carnsew, Godrevy, Praa Sands and with an hoer or two left of daylight Marazion. I arrived just in time to see a Bittern again fly over the Marsh.  And also at the end of the day around 4pm one flew into Longrock Pool about 20ft in front off me in the reed bed. I managed a couple of shots before the bird hid. From talking to everyone today it would appear there are now four Bittern's on the marsh at present. (So now is likely your best chance to view one) Selection of images from today below:
