Rail and Bittern show well for 200th post

The Waterrail and Bittern were showing well at Marazion today. Would of liked to got a bit closer on the Bittern shots but can't complain really. Bit of a disastor to start with when the tripod dropped out the van and broke the gimbal but thought sod it I shall just carry on regardless. The waterrail must of been hungary/cold he stood in the open for about 15 minutes about 10 ft from me enjoying the mid morning sunlight after a cold night. I did mess up the Shovellor images burn't out the highlights but I shall get them again no doubt.
