Potteric Carr, S Yorks - 28th December 2007

Bittern - Potteric Carr Nature Reserve YWT

Above Bittern
Above - Willow Tit, Blue tit
Above - Willow Tit, Great Tit, Reed Bunting
Above - Coal Tit
Above - Great Spotted Woodpecker

The initial plan for the trip was to loook for Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, but ofcourse, when you plan to see one of these birds - you don't see one, and when you dont plan to see one of these birds - you don't see one!
Birds seen were Bittern - A fantastic bird, showing really well just outside the hide overlooking Piper Marsh for at least 20 minutes
Willow Tit - several birds calling around the reserve but only at the feeding station were these birds observed.
Siskin - 100+ birds were moving overhead.
A great day despeit the undesiable weather, due to the fact I had stunning views of Bittern, Feeding, Standing, and even Flying and year ticking Willow Tit
