A cold morning at Marsh Lane.

It was sunny on Sunday morning so I set off for Marsh Lane.It didn't take me long to realise the country lanes were very icy and I had to go even slower than my normal pace but managed to get there at 9.00AM in one piece.

It was nice to see there was open water on the CP pool and loads of birds showing but other than a couple of Common Snipe there was nothing special.I then had a bit of luck as I met up with a couple of friends Colin and Steve and as we approached the northern causeway screen Colin spotted the Bittern even before he got to the screen.It was on the edge of the reeds pretty close to the screen.If I had been on my own I'm not sure I would have spotted it.

Nice to get some Marsh Lane Bittern shots.
