Taken on the 01.06.07 when this Squacco Heron was at Crossness Reserve, London..
Fantastic bird that showed well for days with onlookers travelling from all over the country to see the first Squacco for 144 years in London..
I for one went to see it three times this image shows it with a newt, one of the many different things that i saw it eat....
(sorry Newtman)..!!

Evil bird, doesn't it know that is a great crested newt - a protected species? It's a great picture though.
