Bittern at Wernffrwd

It had to come eventually, with Bitterns seemingly everywhere in South Wales, that one would turn up in Gower. Neil Edwards followed up a report from one of his neighbours (a non-birder I hasten to add) of a possible Bustard in the rushes not far from his house. When he walked out to where the bird was seen a Bittern flew up and headed towards Crofty. I checked quickly this afternoon and found the bird roosting in some Bulrushes not far form where Neil saw it go down. Hopefully it will be there again tomorrow when I'll have my camera at the ready...
