Bittern (Teifi Marshes) taken on Thursday 21st. October

After sitting for a couple of hours at the Kingfisher hide we were preparing to pack up as the light was not good. Jen quietly mentioned that there was a bittern sitting to the far right of the hide. Wow - our first bittern of the season - in fact it seems to be the first for Pembrokeshire.

This was the best view I have ever had of a bittern. It stayed in this position for about 5 minutes and then walked across the clearing to the reeds on the other side.
