What should appear at Venus Pool, the day I left for Norfolk? A Bittern! Obviously content to set up residence in the reedbed over on the far side, it remained loath to emerge at any time other than dawn or dusk.
*** Warning - bad photograph alert ***
Just for the record, here is a shot of the VP Bittern doing what Bitterns do - remaining unseen when in full view!!
What do you mean, you can't see it??
OK, here it is.....
Still not convinced? It is there honest!
I'll try and get a reasonable shot but I'm not promising.......
