Bitterns are like Buses Too!!

Following my success at photographing Bitterns at Amwell I tried my luck at Fishers Green, again hoping for a close-up. However, unlike previous visits, I walked in to the hide and there was a Bittern just 15 yards away. Well, at least you could see its bill, eye and black cap and its amazing camouflage in the reeds.

It sat there motionless for half an hour and then eventually decided to emerge from the reeds and walk up the narrow ride to the waters edge, never to be seen again.
