This bird was sighted by a friend of mine (a very experienced old-time birdwatcher) last year at JL but nobody else. Furthermore, no one had taken a photo of it but all claims of sightings are base verbal description (without photographic evidence) from my friend.
The bird is believe to be a one-day stayer and hence the reason why after the sighting, no one have seen it after a stretch of 3 weeks from the first sightings. Even in Malaysia, it is considered a "uncommon winter visitor and passage migrant" wild bird[/i]November 26, 2009 at 2:20 pm #307816tridentMember

Thanks for sharing with us your sighting.
I have merged your post in Avian section with this one in Nature Sightings to prevent duplicate post. Sorry about that.November 26, 2009 at 2:27 pm #307813November 26, 2009 at 4:25 pm #307827November 27, 2009 at 8:39 am #307861sleepycatMember

Just to update everyone again, paid a visit to the site in afternoon today. The night heron was gone. Checked with some bazooka holders and was told that it was not found since early morning as some of the photographers came in morning and return back in afternoon.
Therefore, it is a case of 2-day stayer. I have combed and scan the whole ground within the fences and the bird was nowhere to be found. Guess his permit has expired and he had to go [/i]
