Occasionally we have seen a Yellow-Crowned Night Heron hanging around Grand Caribe at dusk.  And sometimes Paisley flushes one out of the grass during her night-time walk that I don't even see until it flaps off, startled.  But recently Barry saw one down the beach, hunting in the shallows, in the light of day.  He rushed back in for his camera, hustled back down the beach, and the heron was still there.  He managed to get some really nice shots, which had proved impossible at dusk.  I love this hunting sequence.
