More tales from the reedbed: Bitterns

After several visits amd many hours in the hide, I finally had a chance to photograph bitterns on the Humber estuary. The views were only fleeting apart from a single fly past so it paid to be on full alert the whole time in the hide. Once a very rare bird in the UK, bittern numbers are growing and sightings are more frequent, especially in the winter months.
