Our very lucky Visitor Services Manager Jacqui was out for a stroll on the reserve yesterday evening and witnessed a rare treat at the bottom of the causeway. She was listening to our male bittern booming and suddenly he flew up out of the reeds along with a second bittern and they proceeded to give an amazing display to each other in mid-air before tumbling back down in to the reedbed! This truly awesome sight certainly makes a romance between them look promising.
There’s a lot of nature in the North. Look out for it.
