Night Heron at Cosmeston Lakes CP

Peter Howlett found an adult Night Heron at Cosmeston Lakes, this morning. Seen in the trees near the reedbed at the west lake and in flight there a few times. Last seen at 09:25 when the bird flew out of view into deeper cover. Congratulations to Peter for a terrific find.

Apologise to Peter also, for some substandard news distribution on my part. Luckily there are lots of far more reliable bird news services that make sure the news of this importance gets out quickly. Hopefully, the bird will show again later today.
