Bittern & Water Rail













Recently been trying my hand at bird photography, and been very lucky to get the attached images of two shy birds. The Bittern was at Forest Farm and the first Bittern I'd ever seen, however I have now seen it on two subsequent visits.














The Water Rail was taken at Slimbridge, I'd checked their website the evening before my visit and read that Rails were showing well at a particular hide, and they were right!

  1. Hmmm.. if that's trying your hand I need to retire :-)

    Excellent pictures and I would encourage anyone looking to click on an image and see them full sized in the slide show viewer where you can really see the quality

  2. That is really brilliant news that Bitterns are living at Forest Farm! I have never seen one except in books and on TV.
