LEAST BITTERN DELIGHTS BIRD FESTIVAL VISITORS

During the Spring Bird Festival last weekend, birders and curious visitors were entertained by a very accommodating, normally quite secretive, Least Bittern who posed out in the open for a long while for anyone who wanted a photograph.  
Note the long claws on this bird - very useful for gripping slender willow boughs while it waits and watches for prey in the water below.

Thanks to Brian Bailey for this exquisite photograph
