Mixed bag tonight

A visit to Marazion, I was on the way to the beach when I spotted the Bittern behind the water level post, about half way down to him he skulked off into the reeds after seeing the camera.(s-d)  Not to be out done I caught up with it after lunch but didn't catch it in flight. The Kestrel was showing good against the novelty of a blue sky. Lots of Kingfishers flying around but to small to post. Also spotted  Waterail today and up to a dozen Little Egret. Ashly Hugo pointed me in the direction of a Snow Bunting which we went and photographed at Newlyn Todays images:

Snow Bunting, on my brief list of birds to see in my lifetime. If they look as gorgeous as your image, I am inspired to try and do this sooner than later, beautiful~
