|Aquadrome LNR - Virgin territory|
This was a British tick for me and I couldn't have asked for better views, about 20ft away fishing. I was amazing by its size but also its behaviour and piercing yellow eye. A really nice looking bird.
Next I headed down the M3 to the New Forest and Pennington Marsh to look for the Night Heron which had been present on and off for a couple of weeks. I found it after a bit of a struggle but it takes me to 275 for the year. 25 to go...now it gets tough!
