Bittern still here and showing well!

Thursday 21st January
The Bittern showed briefly this morning after a quick circuit round the patch followed by an absolutely fantastic Apple Turnover from the Lawn Bakery - a true contender for the Maple and Pecan Nut Slice! Thanks to a phone call from Doug this afternoon, the Bittern performed well from the Public footpath north of White Bridge. Also seen today:
35 Curlew - Cricket pitch
1 Whimbrel - Cricket pitch
5 Bar-tailed Godwits - Cricket pitch
2 Black-tailed Godwits - Cricket pitch
17 Brent Geese - Cricket pitch
Shoveler - 5 (4 m, 1 F)
Peregrine - 1
Stonechat - 1
Reed Bunting
Kingfisher - 1

  1. Great photo!! Although looks like they could do with a bit of re-plastering on those settling cracks

  2. Forget the bittern, where's the apple turnover ? Mmmmmm...... cake !!
