......but WTR BITTERN performs briefly
Had a nice walk around WTR ( Weston Turville Reservoir) late morning, met a nice family in the hide and fortuitously the BITTERN walked across ( very briefly ) at around midday ( 30-40 metres from hide ). A Common Snipe was just left of hide and Water Rails calling but not seen in half hour in hide. Reservoir completely frozen now except for the odd tiny free bit of water by reeds in a few places (Mike Wallen).
