SHAG at Priory

A little more detail on the SHAG for those who are interested.
The bird is a juvenile and Dave Kramer and I initially discovered it very close to the northern edge of the main lake, at the east end level with the 'crescent' reedbed. It was showing very well and seemed a confiding bird.

A nice surprise on an otherwise rather 'sameish' jaunt round the local patch!
