Great views of the Little Bittern this morning, Bird was more cooperative as it was perched at the edge of the reed bed,it then made a flight from right to left and then a return flight.
Photos and a video with soundtrack of the Little Bittern.

Cracking few hours birding this morning, Red Footed Falcon in the same area sharing a tree with a Hobby, Barn Owl hunting over the reed beds at VP2, Common Bitterns everywhere and the Little Bittern showed well if only briefly at Sharpham Drove end. As well as all the common stuff Marsh Harriers, GWE, Cattle Egrets in breeding plumage, Bearded Tits and a male Garganey what more could you want.
