1 Squacco, 2 Little Bits and Crane in a day!

 Yesterday in a few hours I managed to see the Night Heron, Squacco and Grey Heron, COMMON CRANE and 2 Male Little Bittern including this one at rose Hill

  Everyone thought that there might of be 2 male Little Bittern around, but it was not until yesterday that while one male was in the ditch at Rose hill, at the same time another male was showing well at Porth Hellick. At Rose Hill I got one of the males. This was followed by on Shooters Pool, the adult Night Heron with the female Garganey and 2 female Teal. At Porth Hellick, the other male Little Bittern was feeding in front of the Sussex hide. On the beach got cracking views of the 1st summer Squacco Heron. More views were had of the the bittern back on pool from a crowded hide. I said, all we need now is the Crane from St Agnes and out of the blue, like a Lancaster bomber, it drifted low over the hide and landed in the field behind. Shortly afterwards, it roosted on the pool. Before all of this happened I had 2 Golden Oriole and the female Marsh Harrier at Trenowth.
  Also seen yesterday were the Woodchat Shrike, Porth Hellick Down. On St Martins the Short-toed Lark, possibly 2 birds and adult Purple Heron were still around. On the same island a few days ago, 2 Nightjar were observed.
  Today except for the Night Heron and Rose Hill bittern, the Squacco, Crane and Porth Hellick Little Bittern were still present. The only new bird was a flyover Serin that 925 had over Rose Hill.

The Grey Heron took an interest to the bittern and we observed the heron stalking it half around the pool. The bittern was always a little bit ahead, but there were times when we thought, no, when the heron was almost on top of it.

Rolling Stones singing 'Sweet neo con' A Bigger Bang is the 22nd British and 24th American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released on Virgin Records in September 2005. It is the follow-up to their previous full-length studio album Bridges to Babylon from 1997; that gap of eight years was the longest between studio albums of the band's recording career, although the band has not issued a studio album of new material since. Released as a double album on vinyl and a single CD, it was produced by Don Was and The Glimmer Twins.
