Purple Heron at Kenfig

 A few record shots of the Purple Heron at Kenfig today. This bird was found by Simon Murray this afternoon around 14:00.
 The bird did not show again until about 18:00, when it was watched flying from the West pool reeds and landed in the reeds next to the North pool Hide.  About 10 mins later it got up again and flew back to the West pool reedbed.

Well done to Simon on his find and to Mark for the photos. I believe this maybe the first set of photographs for this species ever taken in Glamorgan.
