Tuesday 19th January
The Bittern, last seen by only one person on 11th Jan was finally re-found yesterday morning and showed very well, but unfortunately I was in Gloucestershire! Despite getting back in the late afternoon, fog prevented any views. However, today was another day and shortly after 08.30am, I had relocated the bird in the same area and it was a real beauty!
A very quick look elsewhere on the patch produced 15 Brent Geese and a nice mixed flock of godwits on the flooded fields, 5 Bar-tailed Godwits and 2 Black-tailed Godwits.
