Night Heron at Lolham Fisheries
© Steve Dudley
"I first found this bird on 25 May 2001 when it flew over me on the Nene Washes RSPB reserve late in the evening. A week or so later, it was located by RSPB research staff on the reserve when it was seen to be colour ringed - a certain escape.
"On evening of 27 May 2002, I saw what was almost certainly the same bird flying over the RSPB reserve and dropping down into Bassenhally Pits.
"Then in September 2002, Bob Titman relocated what is thought to be the same bird at Lolham, well to the north-west of the washes."
