298 Little Bittern at Amwell

Lunchtime news of a Little Bittern fifteen miles away at Amwell had us meeting up for the short drive up the A10 this afternoon. With first reports saying "from viewpoint" we thought it might be one of those dropped into a reed bed never to be seen again but we got lucky when we were put on the bird straight away by the small group on site. Within a few minutes it had dropped and then flown back out of view and wasn't seen again today. I must admit I had one eye on the Titchwell bird and didn't expect to be seeing one this close to home today.

Year list now 298
