BITTERN still at Priory

I had good views of the Priory Bittern from the Kramer hide this morning. It flew into the reeds in the right hand corner of the pool and was in view off and on for an hour though viewing was often through obscuring trees or reed. A kingfisher from the hide on monday morning was the first I have seen since before the christmas freeze (Ray Roche)
