Little Bittern

This week I was sitting quietly in the birdhide with visitors, Roland and Anne-Marie, after our walk around the property when we caught a glimpse of a bird flying across the wetland to a little island covered in sedges. We were able to see only its bill at first and then it disappeared down into the sedge only to reappear a few minutes later on the muddy edge. For at least 10 minutes we were delighted to observe this beautiful female Little Bittern feeding undisturbed on the edge of the water. I even had time to dash off and call Allen so we all shared the excitement –
A special day indeed!
