Yes - and we saw one there a few hours ago!!!! Banana! Banana! Banana!

We were in the WWF hide, and had an excellent close-up view. Malcolm had an argument with Pete about whether it was 7 or 10 yards away - (M was using his knowledge about distances between hoops at croquet as a guide)! Rolling Eyes He is just downloading some photographs now - watch the Outings thread!

Apparently there has been one at Hatch Pond on the Poole Nuffield Industrial Estate, but would you believe it I never got there to see it, I was away in the west country! Embarassed
Oh well, perehaps it will make an appearance down on Hengistburyhead!
( I should be so lucky) Mind you I once saw a beautiful White Spoonbill on the way to where my daughter works in a country pub! It caught me right off guard just as I topped the brow of the hill on the single track road, I nearly crashed the car, mind you so would anyone else, it's not everyday you are driving in the dorset countryside and suddenly come across any type of spoonbill! Laughing
Enjoy the birding where ever you are!

Have you seen any Bitterns yet?

Neil and I were at Leighton Moss on October 31st and were very fortunate to have a bittern step out from the reeds in front of the Grizedale hide and sit preening for a good ten minutes Very Happy Funny thing is, they're not as big as they seem in photos (or to me they're not!) Laughing
It's the first time I've seen one since 2001 (in the same hide too) and only the second I have seen in 23 years of birding. Well worth waiting for though! Thumbs up

Hope you get to see one soon Very Happy
