Little Bittern

tricky scenario with a small gap through the reeds and sallow leaves when they blew away from the bird; sunlit bird and dark reeds and standing still in the gale an additional problem -- when it eventually walked down to the reed base it was partly covered by reeds then it flew forwards and was never seen again in the 3 and a half hours we waited; I seem to think the last juvenile Little Bittern I saw was in the Neusiedl reedbeds in July 1978!
