Meresands Wood Bittern - 20th February 2012

I’ve taken quite a few visits up to Meresands Woods with the hope of photographing at least one of the 2 Bittern that are showing very well (at least for Bittern) from the Rufford Hide. Both were on show during my 2 hour visit though one only briefly and very hard to pick out in the reed bed. The second bird was very obliging throughout and I doubt I’ll ever get a chance to photograph a Bittern at such close quarters again.

Nice series of photos Derek, good detail in the plumage. Mike.

Thanks Mike, I was very lucky for it to be showing very well for such a long period
