Wintering Bittern at Loe Pool

Bittern flying. 
We've been lucky enough to have another good winter for Bittern at Loe pool. This year we first saw them in November and then two on the 21st December.

On the afternoon of the 24th December there were three very active birds at the north end of Loe Pool.

Enjoyed by passing joggers, walkers and birders, this opportunity to see these secretive birds was probably due to the cold weather conditions. The best chance to see Bittern is early morning or late afternoon looking from the Degibna side of the Pool.
This area of Loe Pool provides a good habitat for wintering Bittern with reeds, willow carr and open shallow water giving cover and food.

Spot the Bittern...

We will continue to post sightings of these rare and secretive birds, if you catch one please let us know.
