TWO? BITTERNS AT MARAZION


Today I noticed there are two Bitterns at Marazion Marsh, about 4pm this afternoon both went over from Marazion to Longrock pool within about one minute of each other.  One even did a circuit of the marsh but waited until Rachel had gone to lunch!!! Its about the 6th time in about a week I have seen the Bittern in flight but only today did I get a shot.

Redwing: Enjoying the warm winter sun.

Magpie: Sat on the fence drying off, a really colourful bird when the light is good.

Starling

Bittern in Flight:  This is the one that did a fly by while Rachel was at lunch.

Snipe: flying low over the frozen marsh

Bittern at Longrock pool. I think he was about to go to roost when the heron dropped in.

Excellant Bob, truly excellant. You've put enough time and effort in at Marazion to capture this bird and the images are well deserved.

Good effort
