Marsworth Roost - Sunday evening

For the first time in three years, a BITTERN was visible at Marsworth while the visitors were present!It was very obliging, walking out from the triangle of reeds close to the path (the same one it flew from yesterday) and wandered down the new cut, in the open. This was just before 16.00 and some of the visitors hadn't made it to that point, but it came back out briefly, either swimming or wading 'up to its armpits' before slowly climbing back into the reeds behind, so pretty well everyone managed a glimpse.

About 50 - 55 Corn Buntings in two large groups followed later by a few stragglers (Keith Evans)
