A Bittern flew from the left and landed on a branch, above the reeds, directly opposite Steetley hide. It 'perched' for about 7 minutes,completely in the open and then flew down into the reeds and was not seen again. I took a number of photographs and a 2 minute video unfortunately all 'backlit' by the low sun as is usual in the afternoon from Steetley

A quiet day on the reserve but plenty of birds. Highlights for me were: nuthatch below the visitors centre on the main path; goldcrests behind EM hide; bullfinches from Ted Jury hide; big siskin and redpoll flock by the Wright hide, song thrush too.
