SE Sicily - large black and chestnut bird (1 Viewer)

My wife and I have twice seen something that looks like a large corvid, with a chunky beak, black but with striking chestnut neck and shoulders. Once up in limestone hills, once in a nature reserve on the coast. Any ideas?

Hello again,

the other species, that came into my mind. is a Little Bittern. A very different bird.
But maybe two helpful species to start with? I hope so
