The Brent Goose was again grazing just east of Deeping Lakes LWT this morning. The other highlights around the reserve included a couple of Little Ringed Plovers, Kingfisher and lots of Swifts bombing about (for the first time in a while). Best of all, though, was a Bittern I saw ever so briefly at the back of the east pit at DL LWT. To me, it looked like a juvenile, sort of stumpy and not quite fully grown. But it was only a quick look. I need a better view to confirm my suspicions.
