Green Heron at Heligan on day 21

After 21 days of non stop crowd-pulling, this stunning little nearctic heron continues to please.  Today I paid my second visit in perfect weather and light.  It performed well on the lower pond, exactly where it was first found by Bob Mitchell.  No more than half a dozen birders saw it today though being half term, hordes of yelling kids ran past though it barely flinched.
