All four BITTERNS still at Marsworth

All four BITTERNS were present at Marsworth again this evening. As it was a bright evening I decided to walk round to the Bucks side and watch the reed bed nearest the channel and was rewarded with 2 Bitterns crashing through the reeds as they chased one another. Eventually after several short flights the settled down to roost out of sight in the area closest to the lock.
Scanning from the usual spot on the footpath between the over flow and the hide, two further Bitterns were also roosting in the far reed bed (per Tring Birding).
