Bittern

With the first time in a long time the sun came out for more
than five minutes  i headed down to Marazion after hearing from Cornwall birding the had been 3 bitterns
there for the last past few day.
Knowing how hard they are to view or even see i prepared myself for a long afternoon
with a flask of coffee .
so you can imagine my shock and surprise when withing 5 Min's of me getting there
the bittern made its first appearance ,over the afternoon it made 4-5 showings .
The bittern was still a little to far away for my lens so the photos below have been enhanced
& cropped by photo shop.
