Squacco Heron at Snowlands Fishery

Found on the 22nd May by local birder Rob Davey at Snowlands Fishery, Par. The Squacco Heron is the 24th record for Cornwall (CBWPS records) with the last at Mevagissey in 2004. The bird spends most of its time in the trees on the island of the main lake, occasionally coming down to fish. Thanks to everyone who gave their kind permission to use  images and John Chapple for Video. For all images and Johns superb footage see HERE.
