Marazion and Stithians today

Still quiet and not much happening at all. While six million people chased and harrased the American Bittern at Zennor, I decided to photograph the Uk one at Marazion. It did a short flight today of its own accord and I managed to get one shot. A Wren also gave me the opportunity to photograph one of them also, first for a while. At Stithians I managed to get one of the Great Spotted Woodpecker. Had a quick look from the main hide, nearest bird was a Lapwing approximatly a mile away, really need some water in here to increase the levels. Onto todays images:

Great images Bob,love the Bittern flight shot.
Also loved the American Bittern,which i did not disturb.
We went on Friday and had a poor sighting,however on Sunday we got lucky,and saw it for 30 seconds.
Well worth the three hour wait.
