Bird of the week - Bittern

I reckon to see at least one of the bitterns on most winter visits to the Pearce hide in Gosforth Park.  Often it is a brief view as the bird flies from one reed bed to another but sometimes it comes out into the sunshine for a few moments.  It pays to look closely at the reeds as the camouflage is amazingly effective.
