Little Bittern at Stockers Lake

A Little Bittern that was first discovered on the River Colne at Stockers Lake on Sunday was showing well late this morning. This rare migrant was busily feeding along the bank of the river but was very mobile making short flights between feeding stops.
From the metal bridge that spans the Colne walk west along the riverside track until you reach a bend in the river where the flow is divided by a large island and it is here that the bird was feeding although it had moved behind the island on my leaving early afternoon.
