In search of the elusive Bittern

4th, 5th, 6th,7th March 2014
 Fortunately local birding isnt about just one species. There are usually other birds to find if you look hard enough just as well as my search for a local Bittern has so far proved fruitless. Vigils at Brandon Marsh N.R, Ladywalk N.R. and Middleton Lakes RSPB have produced a variety of species but as yet no Bittern. Some of the species seen yesterday are shown below. Other species such as Hume's Y B Warbler seen yesterday were rather more camera shy.
