Night Heron: Three lads, one night and six new life ticks including Roller and Night Heron, if Carlsberg did twitching......
It was Scott, Liam and I who took the epic twitch to Norfolk with a 4.30am start.
The trip started with a stop over in Leicestershire to see the Night Heron which had been there for a few days. We were a little worried when we first arrived as we had a 45ish minute wait, while the bird stayed behind the reeds.
Eventually the heron did show really well, although at times my camera struggled with the light levels.
After twitching this we drove onward towards Norfolk.
