This afternoon in the welcome sunlight particularly good views of a Bittern were obtained as it flew to and fro across the Deep Pit and then walked out in the open at the edge of the reeds on the south side. A Little Egret was then spotted on the side of the track beyond the Fat Hen Field and when disturbed it flew just on to the site at the eastern corner. AE & RW.
Also seen was an over-wintering Chiffchaff along the Ouse Dyke. JMD.
