Little Bittern: I was gutted yesterday when I saw the news come through as I had a photography gig at Anfield no less, and couldn't pass that opportunity up not even for a Little Bittern.
However I was relieved after missing the bird the first day, to catch up with it the next day and in the lovely bank holiday sunshine and only after a relatively short wait.
Whats weird is that I was surrounded by these cracking birds a few weeks ago in Croatia but unable to get a good enough view to get any pictures, as they were always flying away! And here one is up the road and showing well, brilliant.
Elton res has been throwing up some excellent birds over the last few weeks - I wonder what will be next?
