I had a very interesting 3 hours at the hide yesterday. The Bittern was giving fantastic views as it walked from the reeds on the left right through to the reeds on the right and back again over course of my time there. At the same time another was in full view ‘feeding’ over the far bank. Also present were 2 male Smew and 4 females and 1 Scaup. Marsh Harriers giving good views also.
