Until today this beautiful bird has only presented itself to me as not much more than a blob on a stick. I'm sure we all know that feeling. I did see it one evening just before dark but as it only sat on a post and did not move it was not so interesting. Forgive the number of photos but we don't get many birds like this very often let alone showing so well. As it was fairly overcast I had not taken my dslr which was just as well as I think I have got far better results than I would have by doing so. The first 9 photos were taken with the little V2 and the rest with the P900. I think they have both done very well as the bird was mostly over the back of the marsh.
