NIGHT HERON.......Nycticorax nycticorax

Taken at Buckshole Reservoir, Hastings, East Sussex today 19.08.07, this is my second attempt as i went down yesterday and all the images that i took i deleted.
So i went back today arrived at 07:30am couldn't locate the bird for over an hour then a few glimpses through the branches then lost it again, half an hour and it flew accross in front of me and landed right out in the open..
This Juvenile bird was reported four days ago, spoke to some locals that said its been around for nearly a month and they fought it was a baby Heron !!
Another cracking RARE bird that takes my year total to 197...

its a nice shot, shame about the leaves in the forground, taking wildlife photos I think are the hardest type of photography.
