Middleton NR western marsh c2150hrs. Sorry about the rubbish I posted, based on looking over the top of my reading glasses whilst ringing birds - not even through my distance glasses, never mind using optics. Keeping stuff on the ringing table to an absolute minimum whilst roost ringing, with optics way out of reach has its disadvantages as things like this (or owls etc) do happen at dusk!

Chat to Malcolm today and I agree that the views I had were of a bird trying to readjust itself after being mobbed and Malcolm's lengthy flight views (and brown plumage tones) through optics were undoubtedly Bittern (presumably not the wandering American Bittern!)
