Yet another Bittern!

A different Bittern to the one seen at WWT Llanelli on Monday (pics below) was sadly found dead in the Millennium Wetlands today. The map above shows all records relevant for the winter atlas at absolute (red dots) and tetrad (open squares) levels. It is likely that a minimum of 9 birds have been recorded in the area shown by the map since 1st January (red dots centred black - click on map for higher resolution), which is quite a total! ...and still time for more...
