On the way back from Rye this morning Jeanette and I popped into Dungeness RSPB.As we were passing one of the pits Jeanette noticed a big bird fly into the reeds.I stopped the car and had a scan around and was amazed when a Purple Heron came into view.I just managed a rather distant photo before it took flight.Unfortunately we couldn`t hang around and had to head off home,this was my first sighting of the species in Britain.
