I have spent the last two mornings at
watching Bitterns. Yesterday I had four
sightings of at least two Bitterns, all in flight. Because of the good weather photographers
were out in force. Gosforth Park
Today I headed back there because I thought in today’s duller weather there wouldn’t be so many big lenses around and I was right. Today I saw at least three Bitterns moving around the reeds in front of the hide. One was very vocal and seemed to be more dominant and chased the other ones away. It’s nice to sit and watch these superb birds only five minutes drive from home.
