Bittern at WWT London Wetland Centre

One of the highlights at the WWT London Wetland Centre in the winter months is surely the Bittern. The Bittern return to the centre every winter, and it seems that this winter was no exception, so we headed down to see if we could catch a glimpse.

We tried first at the Peacock Tower to no avail. We were too far from the patches of reed to get a good enough look. So, after waiting for a short while, we crossed the centre to the other side. The next, two storey hide offered a much better, more detailed views of the reeds. There were other people in the hide taking pictures of something, and it didn't take long to see what. A lone Bittern was stalking around in the reeds. 

Spot the Bittern!

A surprising treat for such a short visit to the centre. If you have the chance, I would certainly recommend stopping by to catch a glimpse for yourself!
