Spot the Bittern?
A very pleasant few hours spent at Marsh Lane this morning, on what turned out to be a sunny, frosty and cold morning. I have written about the Snipe in a previous post to this, so I will concentrate on the "other" bird species! The Bittern was spotted in the reeds, south of the causeway but remained well hidden most of the time. However, for a brief ten seconds, it showed well enough to get some record images!
Other notable birds were three Oystercatchers, two Shelduck, brief views of a Water Rail and a redhead Goosander.
And finally, on my way home, this Buzzard
