Been really busy lately - but had time for a foray to Cornwall!
Yes in pursuit of an American Bittern - a UK lifer for me having had fantastic views of one in Canada in 2004(in fact I had spotted it for the group - not that we had known it was present - so I call it a self found- lol!)
Anyway I was not able to go to Cornwall when the bird first appeared - so was lucky it relocated to a better site!
Thanks to the members of the Walmsley Sanctuary for allowing access. a good twitch!
