Watermill Flood, Ogmore

Dean Bolt who has a knack of finding rarities came up trumps again today, with an adult Squacco Heron at the Watermill, Ogmore. The bird looked healthy and was busily feeding on small fish and newts while I was there at 1330hrs. Managed a distant record shot. Squacco Heron's are still on the UK rarity list with only about half a dozen records per year, and was new for Glamorgan for me. They come from southern Europe so this bird has overshot by quite a bit.
