Bitterns at Marazion Marsh, in numbers

I went to Marazion expecting to see two, maybe three Bitterns today, but was surprised to find at least six, and all within the space of ten minutes.  For some reason today they seemed to be showy and very flighty.  In two hours we had at least twenty views.  Given that the cold weather is due to continue, one can assume there could be even more.
