Twice bittern

There are at least two bitterns in Gosforth Park nature reserve at the moment.  They normally keep a low profile but this one climbed to the top of the reeds when a mink entered the reed bed.  I was ready when it took off but still only managed to get one flight shot in focus.

The next time I went the bittern was in deep shade at the edge of a reed bed.  I also managed a couple of pictures almost in focus as it flew off.
