Oscar has sent me the details (camera, lens etc) for his images but at the moment I can’t read them – rather oddly. When we accomplish this piece of communication then I’ll add them.
I haven’t seen a Bittern yet this year – it hasn’t been a year for them in the Nene Valley. But every time I do see a Bittern I remember that they got as low as 11 booming males in 1997 but now has passed 100 males. So each one looks pretty good to me.
