A Purple Heron spent its second day at the marsh today. I finally saw it at 8.30 pm tonight when it flew up from the east end of the marsh. It flew round the marsh once and climbed upwards. It then flew northwards and was joined by two Grey Herons. Myself and Ian Webster saw it fly about a mile away before drifting out of sight. A couple images are attached below:
