Squacco Heron Ardeola ralloides
Very rare vagrant. Squacco Heron is still a rare bird in Britain, with about 170 recorded up to 2016, but numbers have been increasing especially since the turn of the century (BBRC). Most occur between April and October, with May-June the peak period. The Lincolnshire records match the trend and pattern of occurrence.
