Once Bittern.....

After many attempts, finally I manage to encounter one of Britain's most elusive birds

angry Bird

Such a thrill to finally see this elusive species from the Bittern hide at Fishers Green in the Lee Valley. It waded around for a good ten minutes and apart from many shots spoiled by reeds in the way I managed to bag a few good ones

and a heron in the same reedbed glancing over to see what all the fuss was about
