Although seen most days, the first bittern was heard tuning up / booming at Leighton Moss last night and again this morning.
Of course we're hopeful that this may lead to breeding on site.

For those interested in the likely departure dates, gull calling and behavior of migrant bitterns at the reserve you may be interested in revisiting Jarrod's observations from 2016, as posted on the LDBWS forum.

Any info on the relationship between the first tuning up and the actual first departure date? Be interesting as always to see how many there are!
