Bittern



















We are now at the Winter Solstice and can look forward to days lengthening again although today's mild weather with sunny periods does not feel like midwinter.
We visited Slimbridge WWT today and were rewarded with views of a Bittern on the reserve.These birds are really well camouflaged and difficult to spot in the reedbeds so we were pleased to get a good view.
