Wed 27.2.19  (5.20 - 6.25PM)

Bittern        (in flight 6.20pm)

Water rail    (heard twice from causeway reed bed)

Snipe 20     (all flew away 6.10-6.25pm NW)

Tufted ducks

Mallards

Shoveller

Mute swans

White feral geese + 1 Canada

Coots

Moorhens

Red buntings 2+

Blue tit

Great tit

Wren

Song thrush

Corvid roost     (jackdaws+magpies)

Great crested grebe

The bittern made me wait into failing light. Off it took from the reed bed at 6.20pm. It was quite a sight flying over the causeway.

It circled once calling occasionally, but on the 2nd circle it flew from view eastwards out of sight. Great view in my bino's

of the bittern and Jupiter in the same field of view - now that probably wont happen again to me in my lifetime!
