BITTERN BONANZA AS FREEZING WEATHER REVEALS LARGE NUMBERS
BITTERNS and more BITTERNS. With the freezing conditions of the past week, Buckinghamshire has experienced an influx of this reed dwelling species, with 2 birds at Willen Lake, 2 birds at Weston Turville Reservoir and 2 birds at Calvert BBOWT Lake. At least two more are at Tring Reservoirs, just over the county border in Hertfordshire. Mark Stirland took these fantastic images above.
