A first for me
Had a wander round my local patch this morning, Caldecote Lake, and I’m glad I did. Saw a bird I’ve never seen before; a Bittern. He was being mobbed by over 20 Black-headed Gulls, poor chap, and I must admit I was cheering him on as he eventually found peace and sanctuary in some reeds. I did get a few pictures, but what would have been the best one, I managed to clip his wing. Oh well, can’t win ‘em all.
