BITTERN at Cuckoo's Bridge

I saw Roger & Rose Hartwell this morning returning from their morning walk in the village and they told me they had seen a female Goosander on the river upstream of Danish Camp near the moorings.

They also told me that they had disturbed a Bittern just downstream of the weir and lock on Saturday morning first thing. The bird had been on the river edge and flew in the direction of Cuckoo Bridge pit. (per Robin Edwards)
