Little Bittern; Avetorillo

Ixobrychus minutus


Lots of these to be seen in this part of the marshes. They tend to hide out of sight until they want to move, then fly quickly through the reed tops to the new place, stop on the top for a few moments to survey the scene, then slide down out of sight.
