More detail on the Priory BITTERN

My son David first picked up the Bittern and it showed well for about half an hour this afternoon. It was in a large clump of reed looking off to the left from the hide. It eventually disappeared from view into the back of the reeds. We then went to one of the fishing swims on the north shore of the lake opposite the river channel, and at 4.30 PM watched it fly across the length of the lake and drop into the cresent reed bed to roost (Ray Roche)
