Wow these birds are the kings of song, with 3000 distinct songs, they win. This one was just moving through and stopped in the yard during a rain storm, I was lucky to see it.
I am sure some birds detect the focus beam on my camera, he didn’t even look my way until the focus was prompted… then he looked straight at the camera.
Open the post and press play to hear the sound of a Bittern, it’s quite remarkable!
One of my favourites to find… you know your near one when you hear a cottage pump making an off sound, and when you locate the sound, you will find a shy Bittern… oong-ka-chunk…
