Beautiful Bittern

Who doesn't love a Bittern? I certainly do and I'm in a privileged position to work around these great birds most of the time and best of all; the management of the fen that I help carry out directly aids their well being. So when a bittern comes out and says hello its always a special moment, if I am taking my lunch break and have a camera in my hand its a moment I can share with other too...



  1. Excellent pics, Ben!
    Are these from Reception?

  2. Thanks David, yes it's reception, a bittern seems to do a regular circuit which ends up coming out of the reeds to the left of the hide, I've seen it doing it 3 times now. Takes a lot of luck or patience but cracking views are rewarded.
