It's been several years since I last saw a Night Heron in Cornwall,so when news of this adult at the duck pond in Polgigga, West Cornwall broke it was too good an opportunity to miss. As their name suggests they are birds of the night, so initially it was content to roost in the dense vegitation on the island. it stayed hidden for a couple of hours or more , but when it eventually ventured out into the open..... "WOW"!!!
