BIRDWATCHERS have been in a flap about sightings of a rare species at a Nuneaton beautyspot.
Twitchers have been flocking to Seeswood Pool in a bid to get a glimpse of a rare Black-Crowned Night Heron.
It was earlier in the week when a fisherman first spotted the bird, and word soon spread about the bird among feathered friend fanatics.
It is understood that there are, on average, ten records of Night Heron in the UK each year.
The sighting at the beautyspot on Astley Lane is the sixth record for Warwickshire.
The News was lucky enough to be given a few photographs taken of the bird at Seeswood Pool earlier in the week.
